Course Outline

  • Welcome & Housekeeping
  • Why Belbin Team Roles?

Scrum is a framework for delivering products in complex contexts, but, above all, it is intended to enable self-organising, cross-functional teams to work to their best ability. A great Scrum Master will use whatever tools are available to help the team do that.

Belbin Team Roles are used to identify behavioural strengths and weaknesses in the workplace, and are an ideal tool for building Scrum Teams.

This first section provides an introduction to Belbin Team Roles and their benefits.

  • What are the nine Team Roles?

This section explores each of the nine Belbin Team Roles and provides an opportunity to discuss them in more detail

  • Belbin Individual Report – debrief

Each participant receives their Belbin report and has the opportunity to ask questions about the results.

  • Belbin Reports Discussion

Each individual receives their Belbin report and has the opportunity to ask questions about the results. This is followed by a short exercise and discussion on the balance of the team.

  • Choosing a Team

Using the Belbin reports as a guide, the team assess the most effective team to take on a team challenge that exercises each of the roles.

  • Team Challenge

The Team Challenge will be to solve an escape room challenge created at Escape Rooms Cheltenham. The escape room has been specifically created to draw out Belbin Team Roles, in order to optimise the learning opportunity.
