scrummaster interview questions shared by candidates
Mostly situational around the job that I was applying for. Example question: You are running a multi-team cross departmental nationwide initiative that includes outside vendors... how do you set it up, track it, communicate, report, handle issues, etc. Follow-up: What if this or that happens, what do you do (various scenarios)?
They asked what the INVEST acronym means. I'd honestly forgotten it, but we talked about what makes a good user story and why story-sizing can be hard to do. Other CSM/CSPO types of questions were tricky, but they only wanted to hear that I understood the fundamentals and could explain Scrum to others (including mgmt).
My favorite project to date. Scrum questions: the "ceremonies," how to run a retrospective, coaching team members, improving velocity, sprint planning. Relationships: how to deal with difficult people and challenging projects Size of projects and duration to date Consulting and the nature of it -- different types of clients and projects How to get a new team with no scrum experience up and running How to respond to roadblocks the team is having Skills based -- who is responsible for the daily stand-up Experience with scaling scrum
