Mentoring Candidates for CST
Mentoring for candidates for CST
This page describes the best practice guidelines already in use by many senior CSTs. Reviewers of CSTs have been requested to consider this in their reviews. These best practices were later also agreed by the CSTs interested in this topic at the ScrumGathering in Orlando in 2008.
Mentoring serves two purposes.
* Enable the mentor (and others) to make an informed recommendation or decision.
* Enable the candidate to learn more about being a CST, so that, if approved, he or she can be more successful.
Scrum is important and very strong CSTs are critical to its continuing success. Thus, mentoring is important. It is in the best interest of the customers who ultimately benefit from Scrum that the CST community be improved.
