Characteristics of a Great Scrum Team

Scrum is a framework within which people can address complex problems, and productively and creatively develop products of the highest possible value. It's a tool organizations can use increase their agility.

Within Scrum self-organizing, cross-functional, and highly productive teams do the work: creating valuable releasable increments. Hereby Scrum offers a framework that catalyzes the teams learning through discovery, collaboration and experimentation.

A great Scrum Team consists of a Product Owner that maximizes value, a Scrum Master that enables continuous improvement and a Development Team that focuses on delivering high quality increments.

For sure this sounds great! But what are the characteristics of such a great Scrum team?

I wrote a white paper that will answer that question. It offers a detailed description of the characteristics and skills of:

  • A great Product Owner

  • A great Scrum Master

  • A great Development Team


You can download the white paper via this link. I hope you enjoy reading it!
