7 Steps To Reclaim Your Scrum Master Super Power
Thursday January 20, 2022 11:00 AM EST (16:00 UTC)
Over the years, we have trained, mentored and coached hundreds of Scrum Masters. As we reflect on our experience, one truth seems to stand out - many Scrum Masters we meet are driven by a purpose.
Being a Scrum Master is not just a job for them. It is a calling to help others. It is a calling to live by principles and values higher than the principle of survival. The Scrum Master is accountable for the Scrum Team's effectiveness and they are most fulfilled when they are truly honoring their calling.
Unfortunately, in some organizations that claim to adopt Scrum, a Scrum Master is not always fully respected and they are only responsible for scheduling meetings, typing up notes, and being a management enforcer to deliver on-time, on-budget and ever-increasing scope projects. Being trapped in such roles can really affect the morale of purpose-driven Scrum Masters and they are unable to really utilize their super power of supporting the Scrum Team. But what can Scrum Masters do to avoid this pattern? If you are interested in the answers to this question, please join us in this webinar.
In this webinar, Professional Scrum Trainers Nagesh Sharma and Ravi Verma will share seven concrete steps that purpose-driven Scrum Masters can take to avoid and escape this trap while reclaiming their Scrum Master superpower.
