The Scrum Master Abduction Game

Every Scrum Master should know that the Daily Scrum is not for him (or her). A good Scrum Master should make sure that the team understands the value of it and conduct it independently from the Scrum Master. Some coaches ask – will the team conduct their Daily Scrum when you’re on vacation? I dare you to check it!

If you have more than one Scrum Master in your organization ask others to abduct you on an unknown day, exactly in time for your team’s Daily. Or abduct some other SM – I mean lock him in a room, take his cell phone and/or computer and sneak upon his team to see if they meet. If they do – congratulate the abducted. If they don’t – give feedback and work on this together. You can make it less “violent”, but this kind of intensity makes it fun 🙂

Game On!
