Hello guys,

I am current working at a software house here in Brazil. We have been using Scrum since 2018, but this semester, half of ours scrum master have leaved the company, and the other half is actually working even on more projects than they can handle. So we have a sales funnel with a lot of clients, people to execute, but to no scrum master (or manager as we call) to guide the project. Anyone has any ideia of what we can do for now, until we capacitate, or hire, more people to be scrum master?

Thank you!!!

Which of these initiatives do you think would most benefit from a Scrum approach, and why?

Empower members of the Development Team, or even the Product Owner, to play the role of a Scrum Master and to practice shared responsibility over success.

What options do you and the rest of the Scrum Teams identify yet?

As this problem happened frequently, at this time of the year, we are looking for a solution that could avoid this problem in the future, so we thought about applying the Squads and Tribes model (from spotify), but we haven't yet structured it. For now, we're looking to teach developers about the basics of Scrum, and put a temporary manager on the kick-off to just start the first sprint, but I'm not sure if this gonna work.
