This chapter describes the role of the Scrum Master in general, ie for all levels in the P4 framework. We therefore also use the general terms “Team”, “Product Owner” and “Product Backlog”. The description is based very deliberately on the Scrum description.

The Scrum Master is a “Servant Manager” for the team. The Scrum Master helps those who are not part of the team to understand which of their interactions with the team are helpful and which are not. The Scrum Master helps optimize collaboration so that the value generated by the team is maximized.
