The roles within the Scrum framework are one of the things that make the system so unique – and so successful. The roles are well-defined, and if each member plays their role correctly, the framework runs like clockwork. As you’ll see during our Agile Scrum Master certification classes in Columbus, Ohio, the Scrum roles can make or break a new framework.
The Scrum Master is one of the most misunderstood roles in the framework. Folks often can’t figure out whether the Scrum Master is a manager, or a boss, or just one of the team. The truth is, a Scrum Master can be any of the above. With the right training and the right attitude and outlook, any member of the team can be a successful Scrum Master.
When it really comes down to it, a great Scrum Master is just someone who is committed to servant leadership. They are sold on the Scrum framework and they’re serious about making sure the rules and tools are used and followed.
It takes a little adjustment, but as you’ll learn in our Agile Scrum Master certification classes in Columbus, Ohio, the different roles meld beautifully in a fine balance of collaboration and support. Each framework looks a little different, but nearly all include the three key roles:
1. The Scrum Team – The Scrum team is the group getting the actual work done. They typically have a range of skills so that each one can contribute effectively to the overall effort. They collaborate throughout the process so that the goal is reached in the most efficient way possible.
2. The Product Owner – This is the person who owns the final product, and they are responsible to make sure the team is using the right tools and techniques to get the job done.
3. The Scrum Master – The Scrum Master is go-between, servant-leader, and supportive coach. He keeps the project on track by protecting the team and providing a buffer when needed.
