rantsauce7344223dSM does not work for the PO. SM works for the team and sometimes needs to push against the PO. In this case, it will be all the times.
rantsauce7344223dsomething that the idiot of a PO at my company fails to understand
magicMirror10268223d"This is... Agile!"
Send this guy home. Srsly. He thinks the team works for him, and towards a goal.
Also - SM is a full time job, and not a random dev. Only in a very small teams (4-6) an SM can do some non critical tasks.

soull00t2086223d@electrineer i'm really wondering why all these contradictions and cognitive biases unified in one person don't make his fucking head explode
Oktokolo11068223d@soull00t The biases are exactly what keeps his head from exploding.
electrineer27291223d@Oktokolo or maybe they are the result of his head exploding
soull00t21PM in daily: your turn. what have you done yesterday? me: so i finished my PR for feature x and now i'm only ...
fullstackclown3managers: We're all aligned! Let's work as a team and get this started! devs: ok... managers and devs meetin...
fullstackclown4Literally all they see is design. Users can't make or receive payments across the entire app? Ah, who cares! ...
so management decided that the PM/PO/SM role has to be split and that SM shall be done by someone else.
PM in retro: so i will give away this role because i cannot fulfill all roles adequately, not because of missing skills, but because of missing time. this is also why i couldn't finish my development task for this sprint. so, someone of you guys has to do the job. i expect the future SM to be always available for me in the morning and the afternoon, so due to timezone shift this has to be someone from the German colleagues. I will have to explain to that person what exactly I as a PO expect from the SM and the SM will have to follow this guideline. also, being SM is no excuse for not delivering your stories, it just takes very little time.
...i don't need to comment on this at all, he already makes a perfect clown of himself 🤡
