Impediments are something that blocks or stops the progress of teamwork. It causes the team not able to perform their task in a better way and on time that in turn also slows down the velocity. It’s the responsibility of the Scrum master to remove or resolve impediments. Impediments can be anything as listed below: 

  • Missing resource 
  • Strict boss or team member 
  • Technical or operational issue  
  • Power outage 
  • Lack of understanding about agile or scrum 
  • External issues such as war, weather, etc. 
  • Business problems
