Scrum master cert test: formulate ScrumMaster duties in lay man’s terms

Provide vision for, and coaching toward achievement of below stated enterprise goals ( among others ):

– Input/output needs of parties involved in communication and other interaction/handoff points are well understood, and thus are always adequately met for said parties.

– Planning ( including daily ), goal/task follow-through and prioritization, customer validation and direct/gatekeepered channels for creating a shared team/customer understanding of the problem and proposed solution the software is addressing are all adequately enabled and well managed by the whole team. Continuous learning is employed in order to achieve continued evolution on all aspects of team-working.

– Functionality that the software implements is fully self-testing, fully self-documenting and perfectly annotated, and thus ultimatelly fully malleable as part of each delivery ( the software remains soft ).

– Motivation is actively managed and provided by the servant leaders of the team through enabling autonomy, mastery and full responsibility and empowerment for defining, and following through on, our worthy cause(tm). People are leaving at 5 every day to enable sustainable pace.

My Inspiration ( Passion? ) for Software Development

I just came back from King’s Head, where I attended the first day of BSides Winnipeg 2013. Michael Zapp talked about the fact that he likes the hardware. That’s the fun stuff, to paraphrase him.

If I had to define what my passion is in the larger field that I work in, I would define it to be the fact that software is written by and for people. So things like “customer service” or “team building” are the things that inspire me and drive me to be the best I can be 🙂

What’s your passion?
