Home of the Scrum Master Guide video series

I hope that these videos and resources give you the knowledge you need to become confident and successful as a Scrum Master.
  • Are you a NEW Scrum Master? Maybe you’re anxious about supporting your team and organization. Or you’re frustrated that not all things are going as you’d expected.
  • Maybe you’re an EXPERIENCED Scrum Master who’s been around the block and scored a number of successes. You might be looking for new tricks or want to share your perspectives.
  • Or perhaps you’re NOT YET a Scrum Master, curiously looking in from the outside, wondering what this Scrum thing is all about.

Welcome! You’re in the right place.

As a Scrum Master, you’re responsible for supporting Scrum and helping others understand it, too. But what if you’re new? Answer: get a roadmap.

What’s your Learning Roadmap? Do you have one yet?

We examine the context of other methods, frameworks, practices and ideals of software development in the 1990s: RAD, RUP, ASD, Crystal Clear, FDD, DSDM, XP, Pragmatic Developers, and (of course) Scrum. As a Scrum Master, you’re responsible for supporting Scrum and helping others understand it, too. So here’s a good intro to it’s roots.

Also mentioned Royce’s 1970 paper, the infamous HBR article from 1986, and stories from the early years of Vic’s career. All resources at…
