Scrum is a framework for managing and completing complex projects.
It is based on the #Agile Manifesto and values individuals and interactions, working software, customer collaboration, and responding to change.
#Scrum consists of different roles and artifacts that work together to deliver high-value products iteratively and incrementally.
Let’s explore the different Roles and Artifacts in Scrum
The Three Roles in Scrum
Scrum consists of three roles: the Product Owner, the Scrum Master, and the Development Team.
1. Product Owner: The Product Owner is responsible for maximizing the value of the product and the work of the Development Team.
This includes managing the Product Backlog, which is a prioritized list of requirements that guides the Development Team’s work.
The Product Owner is the sole person responsible for managing the Product Backlog and is accountable for the value delivered by the Development Team.
2. Scrum Master: The Scrum Master is responsible for facilitating Scrum events and ensuring that the Scrum framework is followed.
This includes coaching the Development Team on self-organization and cross-functionality, removing impediments to progress, and ensuring that Scrum events are conducted effectively.
3. Development Team: The Development Team is responsible for delivering a potentially releasable product increment every Sprint.
The Development Team is self-organizing and cross-functional, meaning that it has all the skills necessary to create a potentially releasable Increment of the product.
The Three Artifacts in Scrum
Scrum consists of three Artifacts: the Product Backlog, the Sprint Backlog, and the Increment.
1. Product Backlog: The Product Backlog is a prioritized list of requirements that guides the work of the Development Team. It is managed by the Product Owner and is the sole source of work for the Development Team.
2. Sprint Backlog: The Sprint Backlog is the Development Team’s plan for delivering the Product Backlog items in a Sprint. It is a highly visible, real-time picture of the work that the Development Team plans to accomplish during the Sprint.
3. Increment: The Increment is the sum of all the completed Product Backlog items at the end of the Sprint. The Increment must be usable and meet the Definition of Done.
