Introduction to the Scrum Project Roles

A 59 Seconds Agile Article

This article provides an ‘Introduction into the Scrum Project Roles’ and looks to discuss the different roles that are involved in an Agile Scrum Project.

Commitment and Involvement

Have you heard of the chicken and pig story?

One day the chicken decides that the two should start a restaurant. The pig is intrigued by the idea and says,That sounds great. I’m an entrepreneurial type of hog. I’m sick of working for the farmer. But what are we going to call the restaurant?”

The chicken thinks. Then she scratches and pecks at the dirt and suggests,

Ham and Eggs!”

To which the pig replies,

No thanks, I’d be committed. You’d only be involved.”

Why the pig and the chicken illustration? There are several thoughts already about this story. However, the common explanation is that this story gives emphasis on commitment and involvement in the project.

It is said that the people who make up any of the three Core Scrum roles are referred to as “pigs”, while the Non-Core Scrum roles is referred to as “chickens”. The Non-Core roles are the people who have an interest in the project but do not have an active involvement.

These include the sponsors, customers, end users, other scrum teams, management, and vendors.
