Barry Overeem from team captain to servant leader

Scrum Masters are typically people committed to the success of the teams they work with. That’s great, but it can lead to problems. It may lead, for example, to the teams not making decisions on their own! In this episode, we discuss anti-patterns that develop in teams where the Scrum Masters act more like a team captain than a servant leader. Most importantly, we discuss what we need to do to transition from captain to servant leader.

In this episode, we talk about Scrum, a Pocket Guide by Gunther Verheyen, a previous guest on the podcast. We also talk about Scrum Mastery: From Good To Great Servant-Leadership by Geoff Watts.

Barry Overeem from Project Management to Scrum Master

There are many paths to the Scrum Master role. One that is quite common in the IT industry is that of moving from Project Management to being a Scrum Master. As you’d expect there are quite big differences. In this episode, we talk about those differences and what Project Managers must take into account when changing their role to Scrum Master.

In this episode, we talk about a paper that Barry authored where he describes the 8 stances of a Scrum Master. A good list to have in mind, especially when transitioning from Project Management to Scrum Master.

If you are on your journey from Project Management to Scrum Master you might be interested in this episode with Danilo Tambone who made that transition himself!
