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

    • Technology

Pawel Mysliwiec, a fellow professional Scrum trainer with Scrum.org, joins host Ryan Ripley on the "Becoming a Scrum Master" podcast.

Pawel's Entry into Scrum: Pawel recounts his initial, unknowing encounter with Scrum while working as a product manager on bank credit transaction software. He participated in what he later learned were Scrum meetings, such as the daily Scrum, without realizing it was part of Scrum methodology.

Eureka Moment in Scrum: Pawel experienced his transformative moment with Scrum on a complex project within a waterfall program. He managed two teams and decided to apply Scrum internally while maintaining a project manager facade externally. This led to successful incremental deliveries and effective collaboration between business and IT personnel, which was a revelation to him.

Evolution of Scrum Master Role: Pawel reflects on the evolution of the Scrum Master role, emphasizing the shift from understanding and practicing Scrum to ensuring the team's long-term success and delivering financial value. He believes the role encompasses facilitating team effectiveness and reliability and helping teams become examples of good practice.

Advice for Aspiring Scrum Masters: Pawel advises patience and resilience as key traits for Scrum Masters. Change doesn't happen overnight, and a good Scrum Master should be resilient enough to keep trying while being patient for the change to occur. He also suggests a learning-by-doing approach and recommends reading books on Scrum Mastery, particularly for beginners.
