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.
This is part of a series of conversations around my research on the topic: Future of the Scrum Master role.
