As Scrum Master you will work with delivery teams utilising agile practices, (e.g. Kanban and Scrum) and stakeholders to produce release plans & schedules. This will involve developing and maintaining a project plan to give visibility of budgets, timescales, resource requirements, key deliverables/milestones, risks and progress to date.
You will quantify and set the success and quality criteria for the projects deliverables, ensuring that the solutions meet the agreed business requirements. You will also control changes to project scope by adding to backlog and ensure that impact to the project and benefits is clearly understood and correctly authorised.
The Scrum Master will provide direct and immediate feedback (successes & failures in the course of the activity are apparent, so that behaviour/approach can be adjusted as needed) and work with the team to ensure that User Stories (with Acceptance Criteria) and Tasks are broken down to minimum, testable and estimable level.
