    Q. There are 9 teams working on a large international project. All of them are composed of highly experienced developers that have been working in Scrum environments for a long time. How many Scrum Master roles are needed for this project?
    A. 0, because the teams are experienced enough
    B. 1 Scrum Master role is enough for the entire project
    C. 9, because each team needs a Scrum Master role
    D. 3 Scrum Masters, with one for three teams

    Correct Option: D

    It does not matter how experienced the developers are, they still need Scrum Master, at least for removing impediments and protecting the team from distractions. In scaled Scrum, each team needs a Scrum Master role. One person can be the Scrum Master for more than one team.

    My doubt is, why correct is not C?

    Hi Learner,

    If we remember the fact that In Scrum cost is fixed but scope is not. Thus, enhancing the manpower in number will violate the scrum model. Also, if the SM is able to build or make the team work in self-organised manner then we do not require a SM. However, I partially agree with your point as well, but we shall always remember that we have to stay with the most accurate answer wrt situation as well as model.

    I hope this answers your query.
