I did web dev for more than 6 years and during this time I understood that I need to switch to a scrum master role. Without going deep into details of the "why", let's say that I love Agile and I believe on it.
So I left my dev life to be scrum master, I got my scrum master certification, which is just a bonus, the most important is : being aware of what Agile means (servant leadership etc) + experience on the battlefield (real life).
But the more I read, watch courses, see people in meetups.. the more I am afraid.. Now what I see is that a scrum master can be easily replaced by any member of the team, that it's an optional job (bullshit job ?). The worst thing I heard : "the best scrum master is the person that we can do without". I saw a full online course with videos showing some "real life situations" where we can see a simulation of a dev team, with a product owner and a scrum master, and the idea is to show what posture the SM should have during meetings, and the SM is just watching experts speaking.. from time to time saying "ok", "aright", "and you joey, what do you think ?" and Joey even not answering him because the answer is too technical for the scrum master.. So I feel sad !
Is it what we call "facilitation" ? to just be there and move your head to say "ok" ? and just be a time keeper why "real" expert that bring real value to project are working ?
