“The ScrumMaster is responsible for ensuring that the Scrum Team adheres to Scrum values, practices, and rules. The ScrumMaster helps the Scrum Team and the organization adopt Scrum. The ScrumMaster teaches the Scrum Team by coaching and by leading it to be more productive and produce higher quality products. The ScrumMaster helps the Scrum Team understand and use self-organization and cross-functionality. The ScrumMaster also helps the Scrum Team do its best in an organizational environment that may not yet be optimized for complex product development. When the ScrumMaster helps make these changes, this is called “removing impediments.” The ScrumMaster’s role is one of a servant-leader for the Scrum Team.”
