#185.1 Seven sins of Scrum Master
People learn best from mistakes. However, it is infinitely better and much less costly to learn from someone else’s rather than from your own.
Over the years I have met and cooperated with a lot of unique and different people involved in Agile. I always try to get better and learn from anyone I get a chance to work with. Nonetheless, sometimes the most valuable lessons come in a wicked form of finding out how to completely screw something up.
I would like to share my experiences and lessons with you and tell you what kind of behaviors might make you a lousy Scrum Master. You don’t have to commit your own sins to get smarter. You can learn from other’s (and my own as well).
I started my career as a Java developer, following my Computer Science & Software Engineering double major aquired in the USA. However, I have been a natural leader to any group of people ever since the kindergarten and I have quickly commited to working with people on quite a large variety of positions and levels over time.
I am not a big fan of giving people labels and titles. Your email footer doesn’t make you who you are and is quite irrelevant. If I had to give myself a tag, I’d say I’m “an enhancer”. A guy who makes a difference with the help of his agile mindset. I try to live by the rule: “Today I will change the world. A little bit.”
