Ultimately the Scrum Master should never tell the Development Team what to do
and they should make sure that the Development Team has both the knowledge and
the skills to work things out for themselves. This is critical to the teams
ability to self organise going forward because we all learn by the mistakes we
A Scrum Master does NOT equal Project Manager. In Scrum, project management
is the responsibility of the entire Scrum Team (Scrum Master, Product Owner and
Development Team) and is distributed as such, with the Scrum Master keeping an
eye on the mechanics of Scrum to make sure it is working. The top-down
management model traditionally used for project execution is rejected in favour
of self-organization and shared accountability. While this is alien to many
organisations it has been proven time and time again to increase the
accountability, efficiency and quality of the software delivered by the Scrum
In Scrum the responsibilities between the Scrum Master and the Development
Team are very explicit. The Scrum Master is there to serve the Development Team,

muddy waters of finding solutions to problems without enforcing their views or
restricting the creativity of the Development Team.
Groups that defer to a person of higher status will miss many good ideas, and

this this removes the responsibility of the Development Team to make decisions
and may limit the options that the Development Team creates. If they are
provided with options they are unlikely to try to formulate their own and if
that option fails they can claim it is the responsibility of the person who
provided that option and not of the Development Team.
You will have to have, learn, or improve requirements gathering and
presentation techniques; quality techniques; refactoring; customer engagement;
collaboration; teaming; conflict resolution techniques; and other practices, as
