Role of the Scrum Master


The Scrum Master differs from the traditional project manager in waterfall model. He/ She is often considered as an agile coach, getting the best out from scrum teams. The Scrum Master role involves removing any team or individual impediments, facilitating scrum ceremonies, enabling healthy working environment, coordinating working with product owner and making sure team commits whatever they can deliver.


The Scrum Master helps those outside the Scrum Team, understand which of their interactions with the Scrum Team are helpful and which are not helpful. Scrum Master is commonly considered as a salve leader. This is because he does not have an authority to take decision, but leads the team, enabling them to make effective decisions.
