How to be a Successful Scrum Master with Orangescrum

Agile Scrum Methodology has been rapidly adopted by product development teams, digital and marketing agencies in the last decade or so.

With it, the need for comprehensive agile project management tools to have gathered steam.

Starting up with the agile implementation usually looks easy. Teams just think of breaking down their tasks for a week or two and start completing them within the defined timelines and consider all is well.

Reality tends to be quite different. For one, it is not so much of task breakdown and planning rather an approach and a mindset to deliver quality incrementally.

And teams struggle for it even today.

“Not having a centralized view of the entire backlog, sprint planning & what’s being done and pending takes a toll eventually, leading to delays instead of quick iterative delivery.”

At the same time, the role of the quintessential project managers has evolved. Agile has become the default project management methodology.

While organizations look up to project managers as Scrum Masters — overnight!

The transition isn’t that difficult when it is well planned, backed by appropriate training, implementation of agile project management tools and significant management support.

In this blog, we will go over some quick inputs about agile for our transitioning scrum masters and how Orangescrum can power up your agile transformation.

Agile is driven by 4 core values and 12 principles.

· Responding to change over following a plan

Agile core values are for every scrum master to always remember and practice across all scrum projects. They act as a radar and help refocus whenever the teams tend to go off-track.
