Scrum masters are facilitators for an Agile development team.

Scrum masters are responsible for managing the exchange of information between team members.

Scrum is a project management framework that enables a team to communicate and self-organize to make changes quickly, in accordance with Agile principles.

A Scrum master is the quarterback of the Scrum team and leads daily meetings conducted by Agile, self-organizing and cross-functional teams that enable the team to convene, share progress and plan for the work ahead.

Teams often prefer a fixed Scrum master; but sometimes Scrum teams like to alternate the role with various team members occupying the position on different days.

There is no right or wrong approach as teams can choose to appoint the Scrum master role as best fits their needs.

During the daily meetings, it’s common for the Scrum master to ask the team members three questions:

  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • Are there any impediments in your way?

The Scrum master then uses the answers to those questions to inform tactical changes to the team’s process, if necessary.
