Scrum Team Composition

Product Owner

A product owner is a role on a Scrum team that is responsible for the project's outcome. The product owner seeks to maximize a product's value by managing and optimizing the product backlog.

The product owner develops a vision of a product's function and operation, which in turn allows this Scrum team member to define product features and break those features into product backlog items.

    In short, a product owner's responsibilities are:
  • - develop the product features and goals;
  • - create product backlog items based on product goals;
  • - order product backlog items, ensuring that the product backlog is visible and understood;
  • - serve as the liaison between business stakeholders and Scrum team members.

In Appotype, Product Owner is typically a representative of a client. A grasp of technical issues can be helpful, but this should be primarily someone who is well aware of the business purpose of the project.

Don't worry if you're not sure you can handle the role. Our Scrum Master will be happy to help you get acquainted with the principles of working according to Scrum.

Scrum Master

A scrum master is a professional who leads a team through a project using agile project management techniques. A scrum master facilitates all the communication and collaboration between leadership and team players to ensure a successful outcome.

    The role of a scrum master is to use agile project management to champion a project, teams, and team members. Scrum master duties include:
  • - leading daily stand-up meetings, reviews, demos, and other project-related meetings;
  • - supporting team members in their tasks;
  • - coaching the team on scrum principles and best practices;
  • - facilitating open discussion and conflict resolution;
  • - proactively identify and resolve issues;
  • - updating activities in a project management tracking tool.

UI and UX Designers

The difference between User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) is that UI refers to the aesthetic elements by which people interact with a product, while UX is about the experience a user has with a product or service. So, UI focuses on visual interface elements such as typography, colors, menu bars, and more, while UX focuses on the user and their journey through the product.

Depending on a size of a project and client's needs, UI Designer and UX Designer may either be one person or two persons. The separation of these two roles guarantees the highest quality, while their combination is more cost-effective.

Designers work closely with the Product Owner to ensure their designs meet business needs.

Software Developers

Software developers conceive of, design, and build computer programs. They identify user needs, build programs, test out new software, and make improvements.

The team consists of one or many software developers, mobile and backend. Their number and specialisations will be decided at the initial stage of the project, during the planning of works.

Software developers will ask Product Owner about details of implementation, making sure that each possible use-case is covered.
