The Roles and Responsibilities of an Agile Team

TO help conventional teams transition to Agile teams
AS AN Agile Coach
I NEED to illustrate the Agile team roles and responsibilities in contrast to those of a conventional team.

Roles and responsibilities is the most frequently-asked-question when a conventional team transitions towards the Agile way of working. Pascal and I have put together a set of role descriptions for a team as they embark on their journey towards becoming agile.

Portia says: The roles and responsibilities we’ve identified are simply guidelines. They are a starting point. It’s entirely up to the team members to refine their roles to meet the goal and needs of the team.

Pascal says: Each team member will play one or more roles at any point in time, as and when the need for that role arises.
