The ScrumMaster is not useless
Last year I wrote this article where I expressed my feelings about the usefulness of the ScrumMaster. During the last three days I learned a lot useful and funny stuff about Scrum and Lean. I enjoyed leaning that the ScrumMaster is responsible to help the organization change to a more Lean mode of operation where, among other things, teams are self organized and self managed. I’ve also leaned that the ScrumMaster is not useless! ScrumMaster is a temporary but necessary waste!
And if you think about this, it is probably the truth. If you have a truly agile and lean organization for what you need a ScrumMaster? To help in a goal already accomplished?
