"The Scrum Master wants to build it fast"
I have recently read this papers:
and found this pretty interesting sentence:
"The Product Owner wants to build the right thing, the Development Team wants to build it right and the Scrum Master wants to build it fast. A great team knows how to balance these different interests."
Its actually first time when I read about Scrum Muster wanting to build something fast.
What do you think about it?
May I reformulate this way ?
the Dev Team wants to be effective, the Scrum Master want the Dev Team to be more and more efficient (instead of "fast" or "faster")
- a PO could be said to "want the right thing built" in the sense of being a value maximizer, and by definition the right thing maximizes value.
- a Dev Team could be said to want to "build it right" in the sense that they are responsible for defining and achieving Done.
- an SM could be said to "want it built fast" in the sense that as many inspect/adapt opportunities should be leveraged as productively as possible.
That would be my interpretation of this, although it wouldn't be my choice of words.
I had a similar reaction, Marcin. I haven't had time to re-read and post comments directly on the article. Effective and efficient does not mean fast. I would also refer to the Manifesto for Agile Software Development:
Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
I will place my bet with Alan. I think we will see a change in the Scrum Guide in the future. The scrum guide adapts and evolves just like we do:)
Thank you all for the answers... The more I'm in my Scrum Master journey the more close I am to Ian's point of view - faster in terms of continous improvement. Any other way of treating this part would mean a SM to be a manager of something more than just a process.
