One of the primary roles of a Scrum Master is to establish a repeatable cadence for the team to complete their activities. We can’t increase velocity if we are always having to wander around like nomads, trying to find a place to meet.
It really is time for me to find a new job. To me, this is the writing on the wall: you don’t get basic, common courtesy. If I schedule a room, well in advance, using the accepted reservation tool, I should have at least the hope of being able to do my activities.
Scheduling is an art. I get that. You have to consider all the people, the personalities, the goals, the space, the timing. It is tough enough to be able to schedule a meeting once, but to have to re-schedule not twice, but now three times in the last ten days is absolutely ridiculous! It is complete absurdity.
I don’t think anyone cares about what we are doing. They like us, but they don’t know where we belong. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be spending so damn much time replanning every, single week.
Dude – we get no respect and that ain’t fair!!
Right now, in this environment, I have been set up to fail. I think I need to bail!!
