Peter started working with a team. An XP team. His role and assignment was to help the team, but he was early on told that he should not focus, or “spend” time with people outside the team. What followed next was entirely predictable. Listen in to learn how focusing on the team alone can negatively affect your work as a Scrum Master.
About Peter Gfader
Peter hates shitty software and tries his best to improve the profession of software development. For this reason, he joined scrum.org. The seek for improvement keeps him getting out of bed every day… and the smell of coffee that reminds him of warm sunny Sundays in a beach cafe with sand between his toes. One day, Peter woke up and realized that software development is not only about code, but also about people: From his teammates till the end user. Some people you just give donuts and some you need to give a little bit more. Peter is on a journey to make everyone happy.
If he is not sitting on a mountain bike or playing the trumpet, you might find him at a local user group to hang out with other geeks.
