Ryan Ripley presents "HELP!!! The Scrum Master *IS* the Impediment!"
The change in mindset necessary to become a servant leader is incredibly hard for a scrum master who comes from a command and control background. As a newly minted Professional Scrum Master (PSM I), I returned to my team excited and ready to get underway with a scrum adoption. Unfortunately, I had not fully grasped the concept of servant leadership. Instead of being a change agent, I was an impediment.
My own cautionary tale is unfortunately a common one. Well meaning people with 2 day certifications can do a lot of damage to a new scrum team. Attendees will learn about the difficulties of becoming a scrum master, how scrum team members need to embrace the scrum values to promote healthy team practices, and that even certified scrum masters can lose their way. We will tackle questions such as:
- What makes the transition from project manager to scrum master so difficult?
- How should a scrum master approach a transition from project manager to scrum master?
- What are ways that a scrum master can embrace a servant leadership mindset?
- What are the scrum values and how do they guide resolving this type of impediment?
- What steps can a team take to resolve the scrum master impediment?
Attendees will walk away with practical ways they can inspect their own scrum practices to ensure they do not become impediments to their team's success.
