[The following is an interview format that I created for a client of mine for interviewing potential ScrumMaster candidates. The interview includes basic Agile questions, Agile experience, and 3 core exercises to see facilitation techniques and ability.]

The outline isn’t perfect, and many questions come up ad hoc through the conversations with the candidate. Some of the questions are hard, but not unreasonable. I would believe that a well versed, seasoned ScrumMaster would intuitively know the answer to most of the questions. I may be wrong, feedback is welcome!

**Setup includes:

  2. 1 Product Owner who has been coached to be a certain role
  3. You – Facilitator to keep conversation moving in the right direction as needed

Again, feel free to use this when hiring a good ScrumMaster.
