Scenario: Your a newly appointed Certified Scrum Master and you have enough experience to back up your Agile-ness, or you may have a desire to fill a more Scrum-role instead of traditional project management.
No problem! Log onto your nearest job site and type in “ScrumMaster.”
This is what you see:
Wait a minute! Hold on there! Your studies and experience is that a ScrumMaster has pretty much pre-defined roles and responsibilities? What’s going on with all the “ScrumMaster+++” going on here?
Ah, reality sets in. You are really just applying for a project manager position.
David Bland wrote a fantastic article about this recently and we decided to do a little research. Is that really how ScrumMaster jobs are being advertised these days?
