My (over) reaction to certain scrum masters who seem to be more concerned about personal growth than delivering a product. Some scrum masters are guilty of not seeing the wood for the trees. They emphasise the whole team building/empowerment/group therapy side of things, that it starts to sound like a self-help for developers. Agile is a means to an end. For me, a scrum master is a true believer. He believes that if you do Scrum right, there will be a good product at the end. But doing Scrum right isn’t just about massaging the team’s egos. It’s about feedback from stakeholders and end-users, internal feedback, agile practices like automated regression tests, etc. Part of it is psychology – an important part – but it’s more a by-product than a goal.
