Scrum has more than 15 years of history, and has been widely distributed in the world as a software development method for at least 10 years. However, still today there are many instances where the Scrum Master role is misunderstood. Nirmal explains the many misunderstandings he has faced in his work. We refer extensively to the Scrum Guide, a document that still today helps us get back to the most important concepts of Scrum, and evolves to incorporate the many learnings our community has acquired since the first days of Scrum.
