Anyone starting the journey to transform an organization and implement Scrum will face many challenges and impediments along their way. ScrumMasters must be skilled and willing to invoke "The Art of the Possible" to take on these challenges.
Each individual is trained to be able to assume the following responsibilities:

- Teach the business how to maximize ROI and meet their objectives through Scrum
- Improve the lives of the development team by facilitating creativity and empowerment
- Improve the productivity of the development team in any way possible
