Scrum Master vs Product Owner

Scrum is a popular buzzword in software development, but it’s also much more than that. It is a sophisticated methodology that can bring a development team a lot of value if used correctly. Today, we’ll discuss one of the many tricky questions involving the personnel roles used with this framework: can a project’s product owner also be its scrum master?

Let’s start with the definitions of each role. According to the Scrum Guide, “The product owner is responsible for maximizing the value of the product resulting from work of the development team, while the scrum master is responsible for promoting and supporting scrum as defined in the scrum guide.”

Cross-Functional Team

You may have heard the term “cross-functional” team used in discussing software development. This refers to a team on which members have different skill sets, which they each leverage toward a common goal: in this case, the development of a custom software application. Experience has shown that this is the best team-building approach, in terms of the ability both to adjust quickly and to optimize the development process and cost savings.

NDA in Software Development

Contracting with third-party vendors to support any business processes — from marketing to finance to leadership consulting — requires sharing some amount of confidential information with outsiders. The nature and quantity of that information varies depending on the vendor’s role, but it’s especially significant for companies working with custom software developers to create new systems that will help run and grow the business. The software vendors will need access to information about business processes, the intellectual property underpinning existing systems, product roadmaps, and perhaps even customer and financial data, for starters.
