Role of Scrum Masters in SAFe transformation

In my view, the Scrum Master’s role in SAFe transformation is underrated. Scrum Master to a large extent is considered a project manager. SMs also limit themselves to traditional Project Management.

In my consulting, most of the SM’s typical day of an SM ends with the following responsibilities

  • Tracking every developer’s tasks
  • Updating tasks in tools like JIRA
  • Directing team on closing tasks
  • Setting up Scrum events and bringing the team to the meeting
  • Removing the team’s impediments
  • Attending SAFe events like Scrum of Scrum, System Demo, etc

Is this your job as SM? No, not at all. Then what is your role?

Before defining the role of SM, let me set a bigger context. What is your goal in the next 3-5 years? Do you see yourself playing a vital role in a Scaled Agile Transformation as an Enterprise Coach / Scaled Program Consultant? If so, you need to do a lot different than what is listed above.

In my view, SM plays a very critical role in the transformation journey. In this webinar, I will address the following questions that can help you as a Scrum Master.
