  1. Scrum masters don’t actually do anything useful apart from earning a salary for themselves at the expense of inducing unnecessary and harmful communication into a team that’s actually trying to do something useful, just so that there’s something for them to do, too. They literally are productivity parasites. Their main skill is to maintain appearances of doing useful work while hindering the team’s ability to do actual useful work. It’s a job for people lacking IT competence to work in IT and earn an IT level salary when in fact the work they do, if it was evaluated objectively, would amount to them paying damages to the company, i.e. receiving a negative salary. The best thing for a scrum master to do, if they absolutely must earn their salary, is to do absolutely nothing at all to keep damage minimized to just the expense of their salary. But, god forbid, if they do some work, know that they have the power to block and steal paid time from every single member of the team, every single day.

    1. That’s a lot of very specific information about a Scrum Master you worked with, I assume. That is unfortunate that you had such a negative experience with someone you had to work with. I think most of us had to live through some pretty terrible colleagues.
      However, just because you had that experience doesn’t invalidate the role.
      I know that it might be a story from a long time ago, but if it’s ongoing, you definitely should try to address it because it is having such a negative effect on you and the team. I also recommend looking into some conflict resolution tools, like Empathy Map.

    2. It’s not an uncommon experience. I’ve met lots of scrum masters who are glorified schedulers and don’t add much in terms of value. Even in this talk you mention lots of learning and understanding. Ok that’s great, what are you going to do with it?

    3. Not sure I understood the question.

      It’s not uncommon to work with people who are rude, toxic, or lazy – doesn’t matter what job position they are in. Deal with it or leave.

      I worked with quite a few developers who did absolutely nothing for months while pretending that they work on something all the time. I mean, good for them for staying low for so long, but I definitely won’t be recommending them to my next employer.

      Also, don’t forget that just because you don’t understand what the other person does or don’t see it, doesn’t mean they don’t do anything. I can argue that VPs in big organizations produce zero value, but they are the ones earning the bigger salary. But you wouldn’t question an executive, would you?

    1. Very happy that I visited the website. Lots of great stuff on there. I enjoyed day 1 of the action week 🤓

  2. When the recession hits these are the type of jobs that’s will be going aways and the first to get cuts. I know a few masters and they literally don’t do nothing 😆 but schedule. Any program u can take over the weekend and Certify, definitely shouldn’t have Master on it 😂…👨‍🎓..Printing Mill..

  3. Just saw this video because I had never heard of this job. I am a freelancer and one of my gigs is within Legal Services. I was approached to become a Scrum Master. But they are only offering $10-$12/hr? I’ve done research and I’m seeing average pay for this anywhere between $82k and $113k. What is a realistic rate of pay for a person who has never done this job before? I worked in the legal field for over 30 years doing different types of work. Really enjoyed the video. Thx for any help!

    1. they’re lowballing you, check the salary growth and if you can be promoted. entry is like you said 80-100K

  4. Is it worth getting certified in SCRUM if I only have an Associate Degree in business?

    1. What is your goal? If it’s to become a Scrum Master, I think certification is necessary. You can watch this video where I explain the three levels of certificates for Scrum Masters from

  5. Hi Daria, thank you for the great video. According to your opinion, how much do you think a SM should be involved in “technical” part of the work?

    1. Hi Ivona, thank you!

      I think it depends on your skills and interest, to be honest, as long as you keep your mind in the Scrum Master mode, rather than developer mode. But I don’t think that a Scrum Master should be involved in the actual work unless they also play the role of a Developer.

      I am not technical at all, and I’ve never been involved in the actual technical work with the team.
      However, even though I do not have a technical background, I have a good understanding of good engineering practices and this is where I focus – bringing new ideas, practices, and tools to the team to make their work more effective.

  6. Giving an email is not Free content, I pay by giving an email I’m glad yopmail exist

    1. If the hours of work creators do to produce high-quality FREE content is not enough to give them your email, then what is enough? Do you work for free yourself?

  7. Say no more! I think this is the career that best suits my skills
    Right now i’m finishing my nursing internship but i don’t feel like its the career that i want
    Can you tell me if i wanted to make a career shift where do i start?

  8. I am looking to get a Scrum master job, may be pretty soon i’ll get one too… I have my CSM certificate… I have worked in an Agile scrum team for couple of years before, but I have a fear that what if im not able to guide the team well or help them out of a situation 🥴😵‍💫…. any advise pls.

  9. On the first minutes of your video, I was asking myself : is this a scrum master or project manager on V cycle video ?
    A little bit confusing at beginning but really interesting

  10. Thank you for this video!

    I am currently debating of whether I should go into the direction of becoming a Scrum Master and your video and further resources are a great help for me in regard to becoming a clearer picture of what all of this is about and what it translates to in every day life at the office, in your role!

  11. As a new Scrum.Master when is the best time to start applying for jobs after you’ve gotten your certification

    1. That’s a tough question. When you feel you are ready? And once you go through a couple of interviews you will have a better understanding of how ready you really are.
