Koos Coach in the "This is not Scrum" comic (episode 1)

In my daily life as a Scrum Master, I witness many crazy situations. I want to share my experiences via this comic series featuring Koos Coach, the silly Scrum Master struggling to understand and master Scrum.

Many people who are new to Scrum do not have a clear understanding of the Scrum Master role.

This is a good practice, but it might not be the best answer to explain what the Scrum Master role entails.
