Two Thoughts on the Role of Scrum Master

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2009 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

  1. "Each week. On This American Scrum. We have a theme. And ask three questions based on that theme. Question One: what did you do yesterday? Question two: what will you do, what do you aim to do, today? And question three: What obstacles, barriers, and predictable -- or wholly unpredictable -- problems are you facing. That are blocking you. From achieving those very same goals."
  2. Scrum Mistress! Corset, whip, and small achievable goals.

I laughed and laughed at both of these. Kara wants me to be Ira for Halloween; I think I'll just call you up, have you do your imitation and then mimic that, rather than trying to work up my own.
