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 tool organizations can use to 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!
