Issam Sedki on one of the most critical tasks for a Scrum Master: Help the team grow

If we help our teams too well, they may become dependant on our presence to solve the problems that they should be able to solve on their own. Issam shares a story about the “let me answer that” anti-pattern, where the Scrum Master takes responsibility for answering questions that the team should answer on their own. We discuss the consequences of that anti-pattern and how to get out of it!

One thought on “Issam Sedki on one of the most critical tasks for a Scrum Master: Help the team grow”

  1. This was a great podcast about Scrum. It is true that the most critical task of a Scrum Master is to help the team grow and like the podcast explains that shouldn’t be done by making the decisions for the team , instead the goal should be to help the team make correct decisions for themselves.
