Scrum team member, Product Owner or Scrum Master?

We often receive the question: which Scrum training should I take? Our response? It depends on which role aligns best with your interests and personality. So, the real question is: which Scrum role is the best fit for me?

In a core Scrum team, there are three distinct roles: Scrum Master, Scrum Product Owner, and Scrum team members. The Product Owner, in collaboration with the client, determines what to create and its priority. Based on this input, the Scrum team decides how to approach the task and plans the work. The Scrum Master facilitates and coaches the team, ensuring everyone adheres to the Scrum process.

Do you enjoy hands-on creation and are you an expert in a specific field? Then there’s a good chance you’ll excel as a Scrum team member. If you’re passionate about representing the client and have a clear vision of what needs to be produced, the Product Owner role might be tailor-made for you. If you thrive in serving and guiding others, and are more interested in the project as a process, you might be an excellent Scrum Master.
