1. Scrum Master acting as a Project Manager

In the Agile methodology, organizations take after the “Day by day Scrums”. Before beginning the days’ worth of effort, teams assemble around the board to talk about the current and the former days’ projects. More often than not, team members provide details regarding ‘what they did yesterday’, and sit tight for the Scrum Master’s answer on ‘which project to do today’, rather than self-sorting out inside the group.
This is the place the Scrum Master commits an error. He is going about as a Manager, not as a Scrum Master. A Scrum Master ought to in a perfect world make colleagues ask ‘what ought to be done straight away?’

2. Scrum Master making decisions for the Team

In a large portion of the associations, Scrum Masters are enlisted by viable experience (by and large senior designers and the task leads are given need) and by identity regarding relational abilities and the sound personality to do choices to keep the undertaking forms on track. Because of this, colleagues depend on the Scrum Master for every last choice, which is thoroughly off-base.
The greater part of the circumstances, teams comprised of a wide range of identities and giving them a chance to express their suppositions can deliver the best. Maintain a strategic distance from tyranny, as it influences the solidarity, smothers advance and results in an absence of correspondence among the colleagues. This is one of the basic Scrum traps a Scrum Master ordinarily faces amid work.

3. Scrum Master holding sole responsibility for the delivery

This is the normal Scrum issue generally found in conventional organizations that have as of late entered in the realm of agile development. In customary organizations, individuals were so far after the initiative style viz. ‘Charge and-control’, in which a solitary individual used to be responsible for all the project tasks, influencing management obstructions to free, basic, and all the more encouraging.
Regularly, Scrum Master guarantees that the designers are slanted to all the project prerequisites. In any case, with regards to the obligation of the Scrum Master to deliver the project, he/she just focuses on the product delivery, disregarding the quality. To evade this, quit arranging project exclusively. Arranging is on the whole done by the team members. It needs for every individual in a team to cling to the responsibilities, to comprehend the objective and the best approach to accomplish that.

4. Scrum Master acting as a mediator between the Team and the Product Owner

Assume the team has completed with the day by day Scrum and began to develop a usefulness which was as of late made arrangements for the gathering. In any case, the team is confronting a few challenges and needs to talk about with the Product Owner to get data. Now, the Scrum Master speaks with the Product Owner to evacuate communication obstructions and outfits the necessities of the colleagues. Subsequent to asking the important inquiries to the Product Owner, the Scrum Master transfers the same to the team.

5. Not conducting Retrospectives after every Sprint

One of the standards from the Agile Manifesto expresses that-“Meanwhile, the team thinks about how to wind up more compelling at that point tunes and changes its conduct in like manner”. Run Retrospective is regularly considered as an extra and actualized just in spare time. Coordinated is about the changes, adjusting and adaptability. It is extremely exceptionally hard to calibrate on the off chance that you look for the modifications without fail.

6. Not removing obstacles at an initial stage

One of the primary parts of the Scrum Master is to evacuate the obstacles. The day by day stand-ups is the most ideal approach to impart the deterrents to complete the assignment. Be that as it may, on the off chance that these obstructions (all the more effectively, the issues or requirements) are not heightened by the colleagues, Scrum Master will neglect to evacuate them. Scrum Master ought to remind the team at the simple start to exhibit the potential bars which may defer their work.

7. Less/ No daily stand-ups

The day by day scrum is essential from a few viewpoints. It permits open correspondence (up close and personal), cooperation, yields deceivability and transparency into the project. Along these lines, for each colleague, participation ought to be required. Amid meeting, each colleague should adhere to the accompanying 3 questions-
• What did I accomplish yesterday?
• What will I work on today?
• What impediments are blocking me in achieving the project goals?

It should, in any case, be noticed that the teams don’t need to limit themselves to the over three inquiries. According to the precepts displayed in the most recent Scrum manage, talk-based stand-ups are similarly viable and give bits of knowledge into the most recent happenings in the Scrum team.
