In a recent podcast episode with Mark Metze on Agile Within, we delved into the necessity of technical knowledge for roles like Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and Agile leaders within software teams. Initially, my stance in 2018 was straightforward: a computer science degree isn’t necessary, and excessive technical knowledge might hinder coaching efforts. However, my perspective evolved over time, shaped by practical experience with diverse teams, both technical and non-technical, and my own continuous learning in technical domains.

  • Not about insider jokes or specialized knowledge but possessing a foundational understanding of software development workflows.
