What makes a good Scrum Master?

Here is what the Scrum Master is NOT:

  • Scrum Master is NOT a project manager
  • Scrum Master is NOT the boss
  • Scrum Master is NOT responsible for talking to stakeholders
  • Scrum Master is NOT the head that rolls in case of project failure
  • Scrum Master is NOT the person calling everyone to the scrum meetings

Here are 8 things that will benefit a good Scrum Master:

  1. Lots of experience! (Has done Scrum projects in the past)
  2. At ease with being inconvenient, annoying and a pita
  3. Ability to watch and listen
  4. No superior
  5. Servant leadership
  6. Empathy
  7. Communicative
  8. No fear (of superiors or being fired)
