[MUSIC] 0:00 In the previous stage, we learned about Agile software development, 0:05 which encourages team communication and self-organization, measures success by 0:08 delivering value with working software, integrates the voice of the customer 0:13 into the process of development, and response to changing requirements. 0:17 The Scrum Methodology is an agile model consisting of a well defined framework for 0:22 carrying out software development in teams. 0:26 In this course, we'll learn the who, what, when, where and why of Scrum. 0:29 The term Scrum was coined based on an analogy from the game of rugby football. 0:35 In rugby, members of a team pass the ball back and 0:40 forth to one another while trying to advance their position on the field. 0:43 This is likened to the Scrum methodology because the team has a body of work they 0:47 agreed to they pass pieces back and forth with the goal of completing it. 0:51 Okay now, we've covered just about everything I know about rugby, 0:56 let's get back to Scrum as an agile method of software development. 0:59 Scrum is a framework for working as a team in a series of iterations. 1:02 We'll learn about Scrum in three different stages. 1:06 First, we'll learn about the who of Scrum or the roles of each member of the team. 1:08 Second we'll learn about the what and 1:13 the when as we learn about the sprint, yes, another analogy from sports. 1:15 Finally, we'll learn the why and how of Scrum, or 1:20 the tools a Scrum team uses to prioritize and communicate its work. 1:23 With that brief introduction, let's take a closer look at the roles of Scrum. 1:28 The Scrum team consists of three roles. 1:32 A product owner, a Scrum master, and the role of the development team member. 1:34 There is a healthy tension between these roles and 1:40 the balance of these roles characterizes an effective team. 1:42 I'll introduce each role briefly here. 1:46 Then we'll use the rest of the stage to go into more detail. 1:48 The product owner serves as the voice of the customer and 1:52 maintains the product backlog. 1:55 The product owner is responsible for 1:56 figuring out what the team should work on and what order. 1:59 And spends a lot of his or 2:02 her time talking to the other people in the organization and to customers. 2:04 We use the term stakeholder to refer to someone outside the Scrum team 2:08 who has a say in what the product should be. 2:11 This can be someone inside the organization like a manager or 2:13 a leader, or someone outside the organization like a client or customer. 2:16 The product holder must consult stakeholders to understand the product and 2:21 it's priorities. 2:25 The Scrum master is responsible for making sure the work of the team goes smoothly 2:26 by facilitating Scrum and removing impediments to the team's progress, 2:31 anything that gets in the way of the team members doing their work on the sprint 2:35 should attract the attention of the Scrum master. 2:39 Development team members are the members of the team who write and test code. 2:42 They are responsible for self-assigning tasks and 2:46 checking their work on each item against the item's conditions of acceptance. 2:49
