Discover only three roles (PO, SM, dev), self-organized, cross functional, performing organization, optimize flexibility, creativity and productivity
About the Scrum Team:
- There are only three roles in a Scrum and it is not allowed to define any other roles as it might harm the unity of the team.
- The Scrum Team is a part of the performing organization, the company which executes the project either for itself or as a contractor for an external customer.
The Scrum Team has two essential characteristics:
- Self-organized: the Scrum Team manages its own efforts rather than being managed or directed by others, as opposed to the other traditional methods where management efforts and specialist efforts are separated and centralized.
- Cross-functional: the Scrum Team has all the expertise and competencies needed to get the job done without any help from outside the team.
These two characteristics are designed to optimize flexibility, creativity and productivity, needed for the Agile environment of Scrum.
