Basic rules and premise

The basic rules and premise of team operations are as follows.


  • A scrum team consists of a product owner, scrum master and development team.
    • For contract development, a product manager takes the place of a product owner.
  • It is presumed that the development team has 7±2 members.
  • It is recommended to carry out tasks in pairs.
    • This is not to force teams to use pair programming but to ensure sufficient accuracy in quality checks and completion checks.
    • However, pair programming is strongly recommended for the tasks that is difficult or implemented for the first time.
