The Scrum Master’s role over-time

06-Oct-2020 10:16:00 Scrum Master Agile

Is Scrum Master a full-time job?

I have heard this question many times. People ask it because they limit the Scrum Master’s role to how Scrum mechanics work, and in the best cases to building teams based on some models. If you think like them, continue reading this article. It might help you to understand better the role of the Scrum Master over time.

Radtac launches office in the US

 Expanding our British roots into the US: Radtac launches office in the US

‘Radtac’ - if there’s an American way to say it, then please imagine it now. Why? Well, you might need it.

Because we’ve always loved our American cousins, we’ve decided there’s no better way of showing that, than by effectively marching in there. Ok, what we actually mean is by expanding across the pond.

You’ve read that right. As of now (well, actually a little while ago, but we’ve been busy debating ‘color’ and ‘colour’, ‘organisation’ and ‘organization’), British roots have extended to the United States of America.

 

At the moment, you can find us in the tech hotbed that is Silicon Valley, California, with our office located near San Francisco. Come say Hello if you’re around - we’ll treat you to some tea!

How Scoring Mince Pies Helped Us Understand Prioritisation Better

Last year, prior to Toni and I joining Radtac, our colleague and Head of Training Alex Gray wrote a blog about “How to Prioritise Using Mince Pies”, which you can view here before reading on. So, inspired by the previous year, we went on to maintain this new-found tradition while also learning more about prioritisation ourselves.

So, at the end of November we bought our first pack, a box of M&S Star Mince Pies but had to decide on how to rank them. We agreed that we would use the same scoring system as the previous year, the story point/Fibonacci sequence – 1,2,3,5,8,13,20 - 1 being terrible and 20 being excellent, and all the pies would be scored on: Overall Flavour, Filling, Pastry, Freshness, Presentation and Price.


Now don’t get me wrong, the M&S Star Mince pies were good but they were not quite what we had hoped for from Marks & Spencer. Which is why they ended up getting what would turn out to be an only slightly below average score, especially let down by the pastry and price. However, this gave us a benchmark for the rest of the pies to live up to, or hopefully exceed.
