Editor’s Note: Tanner here. I’m usually the one doing the writing but not today. I ran into Sjoerd a few days back. Awesome guy, great writer, and he has some refreshing perspectives on agility and Scrum Mastery. Also, he’s been gratuitous enough to share his thoughts on my blog with all of you today.

Hey Scrum Master!
Here is to you, the battering ram, breaking through barriers that are barring your team from awesomeness.
It takes a lot of courage to be touching the raw nerves, to address the elephant in the room, to being radically transparent and enabling continuous improvement.
Introducing Scrum will involve dragging the company through its own dirt, exposing toxic politics and power plays. These invoke emotional reactions.
So how do you, as Scrum Master, keep breaking the status quo, without being a constant pain in the ass to your colleagues?
