A Scrum Master is rarely seen, let alone enacted, as a management role. The role however does show us how a modern manager would act.
Scrum Master, as a modern manager, fosters an environment of safety. An environment of safety is an environment in which people, from a traditional point of view, act in a highly unsafe way; speaking up, challenging, sharing, thinking, pausing, collaborating, deviating, creating, innovating.
