Scrum Master

Definition - What does Scrum Master mean?

A scrum master is one of three fundamental roles in scrum methodology. Scrum masters serve to facilitate both product owners and the team. They neither have management authority, nor can they commit to work on the team's behalf.

A scrum master may also be referred to as a servant leader.
