The Scrum Master is responsible for maximizing the value of Scrum in the organization. In order to do so, the Scrum Master must be able to intervene in and adapt processes. An intervention may for example be to stop a Sprint Review for a short time-out, to explain to attendees that the current direction which the meeting is going in, isnt supporting the creation of value for customers and users.

A Scrum Master should be able to resolve impediments for the Scrum Team. Therefore, a management mandate is needed in order to actually fix a problem!

The Scrum Master is leading by example, regarding the Scrum Values for example, displaying Openness, Respect, Courage, Focus and Commitment. The Scrum Master also teaches and coaches other people to adopt the Scrum Values.
