The Team - Do You Have a Scrum Master Outside the Dev Team?
  v3.0 Posted at 1/05/2012 4:00 PM by Ulysses Maclaren
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.
