ScrumMasters are servants to their team FIRST. As a servant leader, you have a responsibility to promote and support others needs. We will show you how to help everyone understand what interactions are the most helpful, and which ones to avoid.
When we talk about “values,” a lot of folks lose interest. “Values?” they say, “Why should I care about values? Just show me what to do!” Values such as focus, openness, respect, commitment and courage come into play in Agile Development and Scrum. It's an effort where the team determines what they will work on during that sprint and how to complete those items.
Scrum is based on the principle of empiricism, which is a big word that just means 'we learn through experience'. It's important to understand that, while planning makes "what's going to happen next" more clear, only through the examination of what really happened can we determine what needs to happen next.
Empiricism is KING. It might sound simple, but is far too often ignored. Empiricism is so important that every aspect of Scrum is based on it. For example, if the Sprint Review is not done properly, the product will NOT be properly inspected and what the team builds next will likely be more based on what was planned, than what makes the most sense.
