Welcome to the end of 2019 week 48. This week was all about the some tips, tricks and misconceptions about the scrum master role. If you missed any of them, here is a quick summary of what happened.
📅 Monday: Why the scrum master can’t be the product owner?
This question is raised over and over again. And it is a fair one. If both are roles from the Scrum Team, why can’t they be done by the same person?
Jack of all trades, master of none
📅 Tuesday: Can a Scrum Master work part-time?
Humm, this is an interesting conundrum. Would we consider a Scrum Master that coaches more than a team a part-time Scrum Master? In my opinion, No.
📅 Wednesday: 3 mistakes your young scrum team needs to overcome
Yesterday I gave a small workshop on agility and scrum to a group of around 20 people. After a quick introduction to the Scrum roles, the artifacts and the Scrum events, we went into the pitfalls.
📅 Thursday: How to SWOT like a BOSS
One great tool that I think every leader should have in their arsenal is the SWOT analysis. What makes it a great tool? It helps the team decide without the influence of the HIPPO (HIghest Paid Person Opinion) or the loudest voice in the room.
📅 Friday: 5 quick wins for every scrum team
We’ve all been there, trying out new things with teams. Some work best, others take longer. But one thing I have noticed over my years as Scrum Master is that there is a set of quick wins. These quick wins are something that can help a team on the first Q they start doing scrum.
💡 Saturday: Diary of this past week
A retrospective of the week that passed and what I’ve learned from it.
Hi everyone, how was this week for you? Hope it was really cool. If you are in the Netherlands, it probably was a bit wet, but today looks much better.
So what was interesting this week?
