  1. Project Managers
It is obvious that scrum does not have a specific role called Project Manager, as it was with the Waterfall model. Hence some of the responsibilities are shared by product owners, scrum masters, and by the development and testing team too. From a company point of view, scrum brings extensive cost-cutting as the project management’s massive tasks are now shared. From an individual’s perception scrum opens a new door of introducing some challenging opportunities that lie with either with a product owner or scrum master.
  1. Scrum Masters
Also known as a servant leader, manages the team by removing hindrances or obstacles that get in their way by mentoring them in agile best practices, and not by telling the team what each one has to do. A scrum master has to be a good listener, he should be vigilant of all the developments and progress that is happening around, he has to ensure that everyone is on the same page. The role of a scrum master is to facilitate daily scrum, sprint planning, reviews, and sprint retrospective.
  1. Managers
Advantages that scrum training introduces for managers are huge. First and foremost it authorizes them to understand scrum so that they can easily make the stakeholders understand scrum and its criticality to the organization. For a change, a manager can take up the role of a scrum master to understand the process in depth from the root level. Then only he or she can highlight some process improvements to higher management.
  1. Product Managers
Scrum process helps the product owners to conduct the processes in an efficient and better way. It is a role which is professional and is responsible for the development of a product in an organization, known as the practice of product management. They are responsible for guiding the product to success. A product owner keeps a track of competition and overall market situations and dynamics. They mostly support other non-technical teams such as pre-sales, business development, marketing, etc. Implementing scrum practices can surely bring in the quick feedback loop and high returns on investments to the organization.
  1. Product Owners
A visionary, a mediating person, and a key stakeholder are the terms used to define the role of a Product Owner. He is the person who gives priority to the product backlogs. He is also the one who makes important business decisions. While it is not compulsory for a product owner to have detailed and in-depth technical knowledge, they do have to make sure that the development team does deliver a quality product on or before time. This adds business values to end users or customers in a real sense.
  1. Software Developers
The adaptability of the scrum process and methodology to a developer makes them self reliant, organized and disciplined. Due to the immediate response or feedback mechanism, they get to know their errors and lessons learned much earlier than it used to be in the waterfall model.
  1. Software Development Managers
Software development managers lead the teams of software developers working in companies of various domains ranging from defense to banking, insurance, etc. in addition to designing web and its applications, software designing, they also manage, train and hire staff, create and maintain budgets, and submit progress reports to senior management. They also make sure that quality product is delivered to customers on or before time. Scrum process makes it much easier for them and also well organized. Since scrum brings transparency in work and its working processes and gets to know of any loopholes or hindrances or obstacles much sooner than later.
  1. Software Testers
Software tester’s work goes unrecognized of almost all the development projects. Many a time a software tester is working with teams that develop vendor software in a services organization. In the current scenario, quite a few software’s are pushed through DevOps (Development + Operations) where development, testing, and delivery are released on a continuous loop using an agile iterative development process. In today’s world just having knowledge of software testing is not sufficient, you must know the agile scrum way of working, different agile processes. Having a Scrum Master Certification in your resume definitely adds weight.
  1. QA Managers
Scrum methodology does not share a role for QA Managers, but it does have an opening for QA managers to take up challenging work of either Product Owner or Scrum Master. The specific roles and responsibilities of a quality assurance manager vary from industry to industry. Although some common and typical responsibilities include setting standards, investigating for quality, health, and safety. QA Management experience along with scrum agile methodologies makes a QA manager stand out from others.  
  1. Team Leads
The main objective of this designation is to lead and drive a team of software engineers within a project. Delivering business-critical projects with high morale, taking care of day-to-day activities, in an efficient and productive manner and ensuring all team targets are achieved as directed by senior management. Team leads are responsible for the delivery of the product at every phase. Role of a team lead is more known in waterfall model type of development, agile scrum does not second to have a team lead role. Thus, embracing scrum concepts and methodologies makes you more independent and responsible.

  • Reaction to Business Changes is simpler - As the key principle of agile is requirements are constantly changing as per a business need, so the reaction time to modify and implement those changes also has to be simpler and quicker, which is exactly what is achieved here.
  • Stories are small enough to do prioritization effectively - User stories are defined in very small chunks so that it can be prioritized as to which one comes before which, the hierarchy can be defined more effectively.
  • Stakeholders are more involved as they are more likely to get what they want and change it before using too many resources.
  • Higher possibility of working feature/product/program due to automated testing - Automation is key in agile for faster time to market and delivery with requirements constantly changing and to maintain the required quality and productivity.

  • Maintenance is easier - Maintaining each module or feature becomes easier in a particular cycle, also while integrating every care is taken that any previous working version is not regressing.
  • Improving quality through continuous improvement – Any process there is always a continuous improvement process, you learn from the mistakes made in the previous process and you tend to avoid it in the future that automatically enhances the quality of your product or software.
  • Customer satisfaction is more – In agile process the stakeholder or customer is always involved from day 1 of the execution of the project, and customer inputs are taken into consideration at every stage of the development process, since he is the one who has a complete idea as to what kind of product he is expecting, so naturally his satisfaction is more because the projects proceed ahead only after consent from customer to move ahead.
  • Due to cross-functional approach teams are bonded and content – As the agile process involves cross-functional teams each team member doing his or her role properly, this creates a sense of bonding and ownership and no any single team member is overloaded or overburdened.
  • Transparency throughout the value stream - At all times each team member is aware of what another team member is working on so there is complete transparency in terms of work allocation and value proposition.
  • Product market fit is more probable due to constant feedback – The agile process works on taking feedback from the market and then creating product or software as per the requirements, that eliminates the risk of whether the product will sell in the market or not.
