Foreward Regarding Recipes
A friend once told me about a tradition in their family. When a couple gets engaged, the brides grandmother bakes their wedding cake. As I am a person that loves stories and metaphors, I will now tell you this story and analogise it to making great Scrum Masters.
So the grandmother follows a traditional recipe. This begins as soon as the young couple announces their engagement. The grandmother makes a three layered cake, mounted on a pedestal. She then attends to the cake every week, pouring a shot of premium whiskey on top.Two years later, shortly before the wedding ceremony, she ices the cake to be presented and later shared by the newly wed couple.
Like cakes, there are many recipes to become Scrum Masters. I am now sharing one of them with you.
