Lesson 01: Roles in a Scrum Project

Welcome to the first lesson of this course!

2020 Update

  1. There’s no “Development Team” in the 2020 update of the Scrum Guide anymore, and there are only Developers, along with the Scrum Master and Product Owner. They’ve made this change because having a team within the team didn’t add much value.

  2. Before, the recommended size used to be 3 to 9 members in the development team. Now that there’s no “development team” anymore, the recommended size is “10 people or less” for the whole Scrum Team.

  3. The “self-organization” concept is now called “self-managing”. It’s the same concept, and the reason for the change is that they believe the new name is clearer.
