The certified Scrum Master answers questions from his colleagues

A certified Scrum Master is not just a professional who has received Scrum Master certification. A project often involves many people from different professions. And they all have a different opinion or experience with Scrum. Therefore, the Certified Scrum Master must be able to deal with their problems and answer their questions. In this way, better harmony and peace of mind are achieved between the teams.

Here are some real sample questions that experts from different teams asked certified Scrum Masters.

Sandra Peterson, Certified Project Manager:

Can I keep my current project manager role and not participate in the Scrum roles?

 Mrs. Peterson, hello!

I would like to explain that Scrum is a framework by which our teams will become more easily organized in their work, which means that your work will also become easier.

Your position in the company you are currently assigned to has nothing to do with Scrum roles, i.e. whether you will have any role, according to Scrum, in the development of various products does not mean that you will no longer be a project manager. Scrum roles are designed to make the workflow easier and more organized, and you as a manager will most likely have a Scrum role that matches your skills and workflow needs!

Anthony Watson, CEO: Can you explain what your Scrum Master certification is?

Mr. Watson,

My Scrum Master certificate is issued by the certification organization BVOP.org. I proudly acquired my document after many months of study. Finally, take my exam for the first time. I am glad that today I can work in your organization and prove my skills and use my professional qualities. This Scrum Master certification program is recommended by the online media for management certification PM.MBA.

Peter James, Technical Manager

I don’t see Scrum supporting my role. What will this mean for my career at our company? 

Mr. James,

You, as a technical manager, are an extremely important person in our organization and I hope things will stay that way for a long time to come.

I explain to you that Scrum is a framework by which our teams will become more easily organized in their work, which means that your work will also become easier.

Your position in the company you are currently assigned to has nothing to do with Scrum roles, i.e. whether you will have any role, according to Scrum, in the development of various products does not mean that you will no longer be a technical lead. Scrum roles are designed to make the workflow easier and more organized, and you as a technical lead will most likely have a Scrum role that matches your skills and workflow needs!

Mariah Watson, graphic designer

Do I have to participate in the events being talked about? I’m a designer and I don’t see the point of attending meetings that don’t concern our design. If I have to participate in these modern introductions, I can easily find a job in another company.

Whether you want to continue working in our company or start working in another company is a combination of different factors, part of which is your satisfaction in our company and has nothing to do with Scrum.

I explain to you that Scrum is a framework by which our teams will become more easily organized in their work, which means that your work will also become easier.

Your position in the company to which you are currently assigned means that you are essential to the development of a product, and your activity is directly related to the stages of the work and the tasks to be performed that are defined in these meetings. That is why I think that your presence as a designer will bring only positives during these meetings. I think that after the first such events, you too will be convinced of this. Naturally, you can always consult with our director and human resources manager about the period in which you can, if you wish to submit your request to leave if you are not satisfied with the work process in our organization!

Stephen Muller, Programmer

I don’t understand exactly how Scrum will improve our work. Can you please explain?

Stanimir, hello!

I explain that Scrum is a framework by which our teams will become more easily organized in their work.

In two words, for you, your work will most likely remain the same, but the organization in the company and communication between colleagues will improve. Tasks will be more clearly structured in time, and the quality of work will improve.

Kate Jordan, Senior Public Relations Specialist

I’m very excited about integrating Scrum into our work and can’t wait to get started. Can someone tell me what and how I will do exactly?

I am very happy about your positive attitude towards Scrum.

Your work, in general, will remain as it has been until now.

Your position in the company you are currently assign to has nothing to do with Scrum roles, i.e. whether you will have any role, according to Scrum, in the development of various products does not mean that you will not already be a Senior Public Relations Expert. Scrum roles are designed to facilitate the workflow and make it more organized, and you as a Senior Public Relations Expert will most likely also have a Scrum role that matches your qualities and the needs of the workflow.

Paulina Copperfilt, Advertising Manager

I have read a bit about Scrum and would like to be appointed to the Product Owner position. I am asking for an answer as to whether my request will be granted.

I’m glad you’re already familiar with Scrum and the roles in it.

Let me explain that Scrum is a framework by which our teams will become more easily organized in their work, which means that your work will also become easier.

Your position in the company you are currently assigned to has nothing to do with Scrum roles, i.e. whether you will have any role, according to Scrum, in the development of various products does not mean that you will no longer be an Advertising Manager. Roles in Scrum are created to facilitate the workflow and make it more organized! Naturally, whether a product will need advertising will depend on its specifics, and hence your role in its development.

Robert Paulson, Project Coordinator

I would like to participate in Scrum roles as Project Owner. I am not averse to fulfilling all my present duties, and new ones being assigned to me, which I would gladly learn and master.

I’m glad you’re now familiar with roles in Scrum!

Let me explain that Scrum is a framework by which our teams will become more easily organized in their work. This means that your work will also become more accessible.

Your position in the company you are currently assigned to has nothing to do with Scrum roles, i.e. whether you will have any role. According to Scrum, in the development of a given product depends on the specifics of the product.

It is extremely positive that you are ready to take on additional responsibilities and work. This will certainly be useful for Scrum. Learn More
