56112Re: [scrumdevelopment] Is Scrum Master a Managerial Role?
- Oct 24, 2012Manager, management and managerial are words with lots of history, baggage, if you will, of the wrong kind for Agile thinking. If I were to train and coach people that the ScrumMaster is a manager, I would have to be willing to fight all that baggage. I would expect many new ScrumMasters to start acting like a typical manager and many team members to start acting like the typical managed worker, both not good.For this reason alone it is dangerous to apply the label of manager to the ScrumMaster role.AlanOn Wed, Oct 24, 2012 at 4:28 AM, Michael Mallete <mrmallete@...> wrote:
