In this chapter, we learned how a Scrum Team operates and in which ways it is different from traditional project teams. We discussed the roles of Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Developer and defined their areas of responsibility. For Scrum to succeed, it is essential that everyone understands their role within the team and also the extent and limits of their authority and responsibility, which is why we also discussed some of the boundaries each team role has.
Finally, we addressed some common, real-life issues faced by Scrum Teams that aren't fully addressed in the Scrum Guide. We did this in the form of a Q&A session for each role. All this should form a solid basis for understanding how Scrum works. The knowledge gained here about the Scrum Team will be solidified in the next chapter, where we will be exploring Scrum Events.
