- Jun 18, 2009Actually, since your CEO is holding the SM accountable for the team's
progress, it is clear that your SM is actually your PO, who you call
your PO is actually just a stakeholder... if the SM can deflect the
CEO's questions over to the PO, that would be better. If he can't, then
the SM is actually the PO
Anyway, I see nothing wrong with the CEO's questions. These are what
you'd expect him to ask. Your SM has just been given the opportunity to
educate the CEO about scrum. It is a gift. Treat it as such.
BTW, now that we know that the SM is actually the PO, the team better
figure out who their SM is so that the original SM can start working
with the CEO in his role as PO.
On the process side, I see two things. A need for more visibility, and a
need for education on scrum. Good luck!
