2017 first 6 months Top Episodes, #4: Gunther Verheyen: “Don’t limit the role of the Scrum Master to the team”

This week we review the top downloaded shows for the first six months of 2017. At number 4 we have Guther Verheyen’s episode on limiting (or not) the role of the Scrum Master.

Is Scrum a team framework? Gunther disagrees, and explains why he thinks that Scrum is fundamentally a framework for the whole organization. Maybe starting from the team (check out the upcoming BONUS episode with Gunther on this topic), but then it goes beyond. If we limit the role of the Scrum Master to the team, we are missing one of the largest contributions of Scrum to Agile organizations.
