Team Scrum Master (TSM)

The TSM ensures that the members of his Team can work optimally. He ensures an optimal work flow between the team members, by discovering improvements and solving disabilities and problems (presented managed in the Team Improvement Backlog) that arise in the cooperation of the teams. This especially concerns those that cannot be solved independently by the self-organized Working Team.

For this purpose, she organizes and moderates the Team Retrospective, in which the team members exchange ideas and experiences in order to strive for an optimum of working conditions and workflow within the team.

The Team Scrum Master works together with other TSMs within the Cluster (Team Scrum Master Group (TSMG) ) to prevent local optimization within the team and to solve problems between teams.
