  • hamidseleman Hamid Seleman, Cooliecutive Director at self employed These questions and answers give you the chance to evaluate the level of scrum methodology adoption and understanding of your future employer (or the interviewer). You may see as opportunities if they responded poorly as you can potentially be the champion and making your presence felt. nice! 1 year ago

  • 7thpixel David Bland, Principal Advisor at Neo No offense taken.

    This is a litmus test to determine where they are with Agile, and for a newbie Scrum Master you may not want to jump into an Agile transformation head first.

    If you are up for some heavy transformation work as a consultant, the red flags may actually entice you :)

  • MichaelMahlberg MichaelMahlberg Hi David,

    No offense intended, but:

    Your 'green' answers desrcibe how I would like my client to be when I leave - so why should I start there in the first place if he's already there?
    Or is the idea to use the questions only for possible employments (in contrast to contracted consulting) to rule out the challenging ones?

    Or did I get something wrong?

  • 7thpixel David Bland, Principal Advisor at Neo It is up to the job seeker to ask hard questions.

    Is your potential employer a Waterfall shop pretending to be Agile? If so, then these are quite effective in peeling away the facade.

    Obviously if they are XP or Kanban then questions like 'Can you describe your Iterations' may not apply.

  • machielg machielg This is mostly a Scrum conformance test, you will find people who dedicated their lives to Scrum, but innovators and real problem solvers might not make it through. 4 years ago
