This ‘Scenarios’ vlog series will discuss a range of tricky situations that Scrum Masters encounter. It doesn’t aim to provide definitive answers or steps, because there aren’t any. More, it’s about reflecting on the scenario itself.
Scenario #1 – ‘On Monday morning, a senior manager comes to you and says: ‘I’m really sorry, but we need the velocity of your team to increase by 10%. Can we meet a little bit later to discuss how you can make this happen?’

There a few parts to this scenario that we need to consider:
- What is velocity and why does it need to increase?
- Is it possible for a Scrum Master or a manager to increase velocity?
Watch the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
