A Scrum Master is a team Coach. When we try to build complex products we need collective wisdom. Whenever any level of Cognitive thinking is involved, the command and control style of management stops working. To foster creative thinking and discover new resourcefulness, we need to enable team’s to self-organize and be self-aware. Self-organization is not natural and doesn’t happen overnight, and it takes years of persistence effort to build a system that supports self-organization. Empirical frameworks like Scrum are very useful in developing such teams. Scrum Master is a Systems Coach, who are experts in systems thinking, organizational change, and implementation. Their focus is the energy, wisdom of the individual of the team and their interrelatedness.
In order to play such a role with a huge responsibility for organizational design, one needs to be good at Systems Thinking, Facilitation, Process Design, and Coaching. So anybody who has these skills can work towards becoming a Scrum Master irrespective of your current role. Few examples of such enabler functions in other models are Six Sigma Black Belts, Executive Coaches, Team Coaches, Project Management Office, etc.
