Topic: The Stages of Scrum Master Maturity
Our Guest Speakers are Brock Argue and Erkan Kadir

An introduction to the meetup:

How we grow and mature as humans has an outsized impact on our ability to fulfill our role as Scrum Masters. We all mature through a series of known stages that shape our values, behaviours, and how we make meaning of the world around us. And, as it turns out, the values necessary to “be agile” map directly to one of these stages. The implications for Scrum Masters are immense.

In this talk, we’ll explore four decades of research into developmental psychology as applied to the Scrum Master role. You’ll learn how Scrum Masters fulfill their roles at each level of maturity, how to assess your own maturity, and you’ll leave with tools you can use to take the next leap in your journey as a Scrum Master and as a human.


  • Explain the foundations of developmental psychology and stage theory.
  • Identify the impact each stage of maturity has on your ability to fulfill the Scrum Master role.
  • Self-assess your current stage of maturity.
  • Identify the next step to take in your Scrum Mastering.
