The Team - Do You Have a Scrum Master Outside the Dev Team?
1/05/2012 4:00 PM by
Pure Scrum dictates that the Scrum Master could be one of the developers on the team, but we find this is hard for a developer as he will be split between trying to do the work himself, while also ensuring that the Team still uses scrum properly.
We find that a better option is to use a separate Scrum Master so his only responsibility on the project is to ensure scrum is used well and the Product owner is informed of any developments.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
