Need of Scrum and Scrum Masters

Working with agile and scrum frameworks is getting more and more popular. But still, most of the enterprises don’t use agile in their enterprises. They think going agile is a waste of time.

They think that as the scrum teams are self-organized and self-managing they don’t need any leader or scrum masters to facilitate it. When other organization tackles uncertainties with ease you feel overwhelmed and try to know their secret. But the secret is simple

“We need leaders; leaders can see the bigger picture, understands the relationship between economy and its environmental support system.”

Using agile in complete flow in an organization is like using a bike with gear which provides you with the upgraded speed compared to other organizations.
