Course Overview
Hello, I'm Derek Davidson, a professional Scrum trainer with scrum.org. Welcome to my course, Introducing Scrum Roles. Scrum consists of just three roles, five events, three artifacts, and the rules that bind them together. In this course, we'll cover the three roles and address these major topics, common anti-patterns for each role and how they might be addressed, the primary work and focus of the product owner and their relationship with the development team, the primary work of the development team and the meaning of self-organization and cross-functionality, the primary work of the Scrum master and the service they provide. Additionally, we gain an understanding of how the Scrum master categorizes and manages impediments. We also consider why there's no project manager in Scrum and what that means for the Scrum roles. By the end of this course, you can gain a solid understanding of the product owner, development team, and Scrum master roles, their work, and their interactions. Before beginning this course, You may benefit from watching my Introducing Scrum course. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn all about the Scrum roles with the Introducing Scrum Roles course at Pluralsight.
