How Do Scrum Masters Know?

How do Scrum Masters Know?
This time the question is how the scrum masters know if they're doing a good job. They answered with this short list of feedback mechanisms.
  • Scrum of Scrums
  • Changes embodied in team behavior.
  • Retrospectives
  • Status of Kanban boards
  • Things missed
Overall, not a bad list. Your thoughts?


  1. looks like a good candidate card for agile in a flash...

  2. I think that the burn-down chart is missing on the list. I's a good shortcut to see if the sprint is on time; also you can compare the last projection (estimate due date), with a new one using your actual velocity.
