Touched on it here
Long story short
One of the problems I have is where I work, the work stream I am Scrum Master of is continuously improving at a rapid rate, and that is from the team collectively working together to shape delivery following retrospectives.
This is however being overlooked after head of agile setting up his own competing teams and management favoring his approach more since he is more senior in the company. Senior management are forcefully planning to scrap my team’s workstream model of agile in favor of his despite the data indicating it’s running more efficiently.
As a Scrum Master this has left me very frustrated since it feels as though all the work I’ve done with the team; agile coaching and helping them to become more efficient has been a waste. I am also concerned since the head of agile will be leaving soon and is introducing ways of working which do not fully reflect or solve the issues we have from limited experience in this part of the business leaving me to clean up the mess, and potentially get blamed if it turns out his model of working does not work.
The business is currently having a high turn over rate with Scrum Masters, I suspect it’s for this reason
