A model for Team Member Scrum Master

 

Matthieu Cornillon is an actor + agile coach. Listen to how he draws some parallels between acting in a play and being on an agile team. Matthieu aims to provide teams with maximum autonomy and also presents a model where a team member assumes part of the Scrum Master responsibilities supported by an agile coach. Very interesting and could be a model for the future.

We don’t have a professional full-time Scrum Master on agile teams.

 

The thing that Katy Sherman likes about agile is the focus on teams.

The most interesting part of the conversation is about how the Scrum Master role is structured on Katy’s teams. Her team does not have any professional full-time Scrum Masters. Instead, a team member assumes the role of a Scrum Master. It is a voluntary role and is on a rotational basis. Is this a model for future implementations? Listen to Katy explain how they work.

Plus why is “Master” is a good word for the Scrum Master role?

Recently Katy Sherman published a post on LinkedIn titled: How Agile Killed Managers.

Katy Sherman is the Director of Software Engineering at Premier Inc. She’s passionate about leadership, vision, achieving agility through ruthless automation and modular architecture.

Scrum Masters are passionate generalist.

 

 

Jeff Lopez-Stuit is one of the few Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise Coaches (CEC). He is a global coach – he’s sitting in Indiana for this interview, his home is in Washington, but he just arrived on a plane from Singapore.

He lays out the characteristics of what makes a great Scrum Master. He says Scrum Masters are passionate generalists, and shouldn’t shy away from jumping in and helping out the team when required, even if sometimes it is clerical work.

Learn about the one sign that demonstrates a team is maturing. On his first agile project, Jeff told the team that all communication should go through him, but when he realized his fallacy, he changed his orientation.

Jeff talks about what makes a Community of Practice thrive and what causes them to fail.
