Scrum Role: The Scrum Team

The Scrum Team

There are three fundamental roles in Scrum: the Product Owner, the Scrum Master, and the Scrum Team.


The Scrum Team is a self-organized group of up-to 7 individuals with no pre-defined roles who work in collaboration to deliver upon their commitments. The Scrum Team is often comprised of cross-functional individuals who work to successfully complete the activities identified as part of the sprint backlog.

What the Scrum Team does

The Scrum Team is responsible for the following activities:

  • Following a negotiation with the Product Owner, selects the goal of the sprint;
  • Organizes itself and its work;
  • Plans and executes the tasks identified during the Sprint Planning Meeting;
  • Determines the appropriate methods of delivering on their commitments;
  • Presents the resulting work to the Product Owner.
