Scrum Masters: The Full Time Role Conundrum

  • May 15, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • Suncorp (Brisbane Square)

A replay of the talk delivered by Craig Smith at the recent Scrum Australia gathering in Sydney

The Scrum Guide defines the Scrum Team as being made up of three primary roles: Product Owner, Development Team and Scrum Master. The role of the Scrum Master is often misunderstood, particularly by management, so often questions start to get asked such as “can I share the Scrum Master across teams”, “can the Scrum Master do Project Management” and “can the role be rotated”?

In this talk we will take a look at some of the misconceptions around the Scrum Master role, discuss how it fits into the organisational structure and tackle the age-old question of whether the Scrum Master is a full time role. We will also look at an improvement plan template to help Scrum Masters improve in their role.

    Sorry - can't make it. Unfortunately this meetup seem to consistently be on at the same time as the monthly PMI sessions. It would be fantastic if this could occur on a different day my I understand how much effort it is to organise these sessions.
