Should Agile be capitalised?
Agile is not a methodology
Agile is not a methdology. This article, at the top, says that it is a "group of methodologies". Even that is debatable. It is actually a set of guiding principles, against which methodologies can be assessed as either "being agile" or "not agile". The whole article could do with revision with this in mind.
However, this particular sentence is particularly flawed
"While not prohibited by the agile methodology, the scrum master needs to ensure they have the capacity to act in the role of scrum master first and not working on tasks for the project."
Agile is not a methodology.
Scrum is an agile methodology. That is to say, scrum is a methodology that meets the Agile principles.
It's not even clear what a whole section on "Scrum master" is doing in an article about Agile. It belongs in an article on scrum.
