Signs for missing role clarifications
Possible consequences of unclear roles
ScrumMaster - do you see your role?
- Check for pending tasks in the daily Scrum. Ask for clarification who does what - e.g. Who does the review together? Who starts the test? Who implements class XYZ? I recommend a name shortcut on the task card as soon as you start working on the task (not before ;-))
- Check if meetings have a well defined agenda, that the attendee list is sufficient and everyones role in the meeting is clear
- Watch discussion paths. Is the same topic discussed again and again among different peers? Why?
Ask for suggestions to solve it and depending on your team maturity level - guide or coach the team (respecting the already Scrum inherent role descriptions - ScrumMaster, ProductOwner, Dev Team).
Circles of influence
Potential sources of role clashes
As this changes with the team's maturity level too - another important area for support by the ScrumMaster.
