Jowen Mei's Journey to Scrum Mastery | Expert Insights & Tips Agile for Humans with Ryan Ripley and Todd Miller

    • Technology

Jowen Mei's scrum journey began in 2010 as a C# developer in Microsoft technology. His first experience with Scrum was transformative, sparking his love for the framework due to its focus on autonomy, mastery, and purpose, such as team collaboration, TDD, and direct customer engagement.

After his initial scrum experience, Mei launched his own agile-focused startup, which faced initial challenges. He returned to consultancy, gradually shifting from development to scrum mastering, influenced by the role's complexity and its impact on professional and personal life.

Mei's early scrum master approach focused on strict adherence to practices and persuasion, but he evolved to emphasize coaching, inspiration, and empowering team ownership for sustainable improvement.

For aspiring scrum masters, Mei emphasizes the importance of curiosity, humility, and an experimental mindset. He believes in understanding underlying reasons for team behaviors and adopting a continuous improvement mindset.

Mei recommends Christopher Avery's book The Responsibility Process for scrum masters. He values its insights into the psychological aspects of ownership and responsibility and shares his appreciation for the book's impact on his understanding of team dynamics and leadership.
