I have been a SM now for about 3 years and I enjoy many elements of the role and so far I have had really positive feedback from my stakeholders. The PO says I have good influence over them in making improvements and engineering managers say they are getting what they want from me as a scrum master so it seems to be good.
What I do find however is that I go from being very busy during sprint end/start weeks to be very bored. I literally am not sure how to fill my day and its quite demotivating. I have started have 1-2-1’s with all my team members as I think it important for they evolution to agile greatness but I still have huge gaps of my day when I have nothing to do.
I have regular workshops with the team, but I don’t want to take them away from their desks too much during the sprint because then they can’t deliver on their commitments. I facilitate all their ceremonies and I do participate in the agile community in the organisation.
I find however that if I am not doing what I mentioned above I have not much to actually do.
Does anyone have any suggestions of things I am maybe not doing that I should be doing?
