How do you measure success? You measure all the things! Wait, don’t switch off yet, because Tim has a very good idea on how you can do this.
Always take notes. In meetings, after conversations, all the time.
Measure everything you can. Tasks completed, cycle time, features, interactions, etc.
Get numbers on everything you do as a Scrum Master. How many times did you talk to each team member this week? How many times did you feel lost, or did not know how to go forward?
Look at trends. Only numbers can help you see trends. So measure and stand back to see the big picture.

He was born in France, raised as a European child and currently lives in Germany where he juggles with software development and Scrum Mastering. When he’s not in front of a computer, you’ll find him behind a camera, in his running shoes or with his wife & son… of course never in that order!

For a successful Scrum Master, Scrum is just the starting point. Success starts when the team is able to own the process, and tweak it to fit their needs without losing sight of why they adopted Scrum in the first place. Jeremy explains how he defines success and the paths he takes to get there.
