The Stages of Scrum Mastery

There are four stages of Scrum Mastery, and where you fall will determine both your effectiveness and efficiency as a Servant-Leader. Each stage may lead to the next, and moving from the stage you’re into the next stage will help you become better at enabling self-organizing and intelligent teams that better thrive in a complex world. When I look back on my early days as a newly minted Scrum Master in 2013, I certainly enjoyed the opportunity, even though there was little information available on how to become an effective Scrum Master. Even though I was calling myself a Scrum Master, there is a clear difference between “calling” and “being”.

I am writing this whitepaper from the perspective of Conscious Competence quadrant. It contains my personal experiences as a Scrum Master along with some of my research work. In my view, no one is going to neither stay in one of these quadrants nor move sequentially.
