Our Agile adoptions could be more successful if we, as Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches, were more impactful. Achieving this requires a more holistic understanding of these roles plus skilling up to be more effective at fulfilling them. That starts with us.
In many organisations, a Scrum Master is seen as just a team facilitator. Often only superficial elements of the role are played part-time by an already busy team member. If there are full-time Scrum Masters, in many organisations they are rendered ineffective as change agents and capability builders. Their capacity is filled by a heavy load of co-ordination, stakeholder meetings, progress tracking and other project management tasks have been left to Scrum Masters in the absence of a project manager or the implementation of effective Scrum alternatives.
If this sounds like you, or someone you know, this session is for you!
At the heart of this appears to be a fundamental lack of understanding as to what the Scrum Master role is all about. Also a failure for Scrum Masters to explain their role in the context of the new mindsets and demonstrate its worth to teams, Product Owners, management and other stakeholders.
This interactive session aims to open your eyes to see what a Scrum Master is really meant to be and full impact that a Scrum Master can make.
