Pino was just starting his own journey as a Scrum Master. He joined a new team, with a strong passion for helping the team, and protecting them from interference. He saw his role as the “protector of the team”. As he tried to deliver on that Scrum Master role vision, he quickly realized that something was off. There was a part of that protective role that was not right for that situation. In this episode, we explore what was the conflict between his vision for the role, and the reality of software development.

About Pino Decandia
Pino started in software development but realized he was more interested in people than code. With experience, Pino came to believe that people can change; they don’t resist change but offer their own vision, which needs to be met.
Secondly, needs drive behaviors. To provide help, we must allow them to be clearly expressed. To set the example, we need to be ready to be the first to state our needs.
And thirdly, that ideological battles are meaningless.
