Scaling the Product Owner seems straightforward enough, but how do we accomplish the same goal with the ScrumMaster role? Is it done in a similar vein to the PO, with Uber-ScrumMasters and Scaled ScrumMasters? Is it accomplished differently via Coaches and Agile Anarchists? Is positional authority necessary, as found with Tech Leads & Group Pod Leaders? And how do enthusiasts and communities of practice support scaling the ScrumMaster?
Together we will explore the role of the ScrumMaster within a large agile organization by discussing the merits of the ScrumMaster role, identifying what problems scaling the ScrumMaster solves and then sharing real-life examples and lessons we’ve learned at enterprise agile implementations through our coaching experience at Salesforce, Yahoo! and Johnson & Johnson.
