About Scrum Master

Scrum Master Introduction

What is Scrum?

Scrum can be explained or defined as a product development methodology that is predicated on the Agile framework. It is used by professionals in managing projects like software development as it involves the breakdown of complex software projects into actions called “sprints” according to priority and can be completed within a well-defined time cycle.

This methodology was initially designed for software development projects, however, it is now adopted for any complex, and innovative projects that can use adopt its processes. As implied earlier, it was designed for software teams of 3 or more developers who need to categorize their actions, track their project progress, re-strategize within 15 minutes, and collaborate on how to achieve their targets and deliver results at every sprint.

However, when it comes to managing multiple Scrum team within large organizations, terms like Large-scale Scrum, Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Scrum of Scrums are often used. None of these terms means a total deviation from the Scrum framework; they only mean the amplified versions suitable for adopting the methodology within large organizations.

What is Scrum Master?

Scrum Master is not a course on its own as newbies may think, It is actually a role. A Scrum Master is a facilitator who ensures that the processes of the Scrum methodology are being followed by a team. In other words, he helps to monitor progress by asking the team questions like what did you do today? What will you do tomorrow? What are the delays you are facing? In other words, he keeps the team focused on the goal.

As much as the Scrum Master plays the coordinating or the managerial role, he should not be mistaken for a project leader, because he is not one. Consequently, this means the outcome of the project of the project cannot be solely blamed on him, neither can he be praised for it, all that happens must be on the team.

Responsibilities of a Scrum Master

The roles or responsibilities of a Scrum Master are stated as follows:

    Coordinate the team to agree on what is a priority and what can be achieved within a specific period of time.

    Coordinate daily meetings and ensure the team reaches consensus on the issues discussed.

    Finding means to remove barriers that cause a delay in team’s progress.

    Helping the team to stay focused at all times

    Ensures the team adheres to Scrum’s ethics and ethos at each sprint and during the course of the entire project.

 

Scrum Accreditation

Harrybaker Training Institute is accredited to train individuals on this course and help them become certified.

 

What’s The Philosophy behind Scrum?

Scrum’s early advocates were inspired by empirical inspect and adapt feedback loops to cope with complexity and risk. Scrum emphasizes decision making from real-world results rather than speculation. Time is divided into short work cadences, known as sprints, typically one week or two weeks long. The product is kept in a potentially shippable (properly integrated and tested) state at all times. At the end of each sprint, stakeholders and team members meet to see a demonstrated potentially shippable product increment and plan its next steps.

Scrum is a simple set of roles, responsibilities, and meetings that never change. By removing unnecessary unpredictability, we’re better able to cope with the necessary unpredictability of continuous discovery and learning.

Scrum Roles

Scrum has three roles: Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Team.

    Product Owner: The Product Owner should be a person with vision, authority, and availability. The Product Owner is responsible for continuously communicating the vision and priorities to the development team.

    Scrum Master: The Scrum Master acts as a bridge or a link between the Product Owner and the team. He is responsible for putting the team in check and removing all barriers that cause a delay in their progress. He also advises the Product Owner about how to maximize ROI for the team.

    Team: These are the actual builders, they are a group of individuals who should boast of self-management and be responsible for the engineering and shaping of the product and the eventual outcome.

A Scrum development team contains about seven fully dedicated members (officially 3-9), ideally in one team room protected from outside distractions. For software projects, a typical team includes a mix of software engineers, architects, programmers, analysts, QA experts, testers, and UI designers. Each sprint, the team is responsible for determining how it will accomplish the work to be completed. The team has autonomy and responsibility to meet the goals of the sprint.
