Agile Scrum Roles – 3 Roles that Make or Break Scrum
Scrum is the world's most popular Agile framework. But to be successful when applying it within your organization, you need to fulfill a number of Agile Scrum roles.
Aside from a number of artifacts and events, the roles that are part of the Scrum framework is one of the key ingredients that makes Scrum as popular as it is. A Scrum Team consists of a single Product Owner, one Scrum Master, and between 3 and 9 developers that make up the Development Team. Scrum Teams are self-steering and don't have a direct manager who instructs them. Instead, they work together to make sure that they reach their targets and complete the features they have worked on during each sprint. The Product Owner and Scrum Master play very important parts in the Scrum Team and between them, they provide a connection with the customer and a coaching role to the developers. But what exactly does a Product Owner do? And which responsibilities does a Scrum Master have? What do the people who have been assigned these roles need to do to ensure that the Scrum Team works efficiently and effectively? And which other characteristics does a Scrum Team need to have to be successful?
Find out the answers to these questions by discovering which responsibilities each of these roles have and what they need to do to make the Scrum Team a success. Ademar Albertin, one of EXIN's Product Owners, explains by looking at the 3 roles that make or break Scrum.
