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.
