The Scrum Method, via Chad McCanna

Here at cPanel, we use the Scrum framework to ensure an organized flow for each project. Recently, Chris, a Technical Product Specialist, asked Chad McCanna, our Scrum Master rockstar, to share some insight about why this works so well for cPanel. “Chad, in your words, what is a Scrum Master?” A Scrum Master is classified as a servant leader. They’re basically in charge of facilitating the development process and owning the Scrum framework. They act …
