Synopsis: Dear Mr Scrum Master, Welcome to the company - Scrum Masters are sh!t and why are you here? You add nothing to this and...." This was the start of an email I received one week into my new role as a Scrum Master. How do I respond to the points raised, who do they think they are, what has previously happened to them that made the think this way? More importantly - where should I bury the body? I'll take you through the points they raised and discuss my response to them. Do I win them over with my charm and persuasion, or give up and look for a new role.
