1. Random thoughts

1.1. Every team has lost a member besides mine. There is value in a ScrumMaster

1.2. Eric wants to make a cookie cutter format and force teams to do it. I should work to find why, what things does he need to know and can they be done with scrum.

1.3. Unification is project management. Getting metrics to micro manage engineers to make sure “they are even working” is project management.

1.3.1. Scrum is empowering teams to do what they need to do to succeed.

1.3.2. How can I be a successful ScrumMaster when my boss and product want to do project management.

1.3.3. You strip me of my power. Don’t communicate with me, expect me to “just go with it” and do things that are counterproductive. Now you want metrics that could be used to show we are doing poorly. Teams are doing poorly because teams have no autonomy. They are order takers. Forced to work with people and do what they are told. Forced deadlines No communication with actual customers ELT constantly changing their minds on what they want and giving customers deadlines. These are the things killing productivity and culture. You’d know this if you ever read sprint reports. I’ll give you the reports to show the productivity of engineers. But I’m going to make it scream the reasons they are failing. And it’s not the engineers. It’s ELT and middle management meddling where they shouldn’t. Maybe I’m not what you want here. You want a yes man who just does whatever, regardless of the impact. That’s not my style. Why do you assume every other idea is better? Ethan’s framework is good. But i have far more agile knowledge than he does. You’ve given Bron free reign to do what he wants in the name of lean. You haven’t given me free reign to do anything.
