Agile Development - Team Structure

There are three primary roles on an agile team: Value Seekers, Builders, and ScrumMasters. The Value Seekers manage the product vision and return-on-investment (ROI). Builders realize the product plans and deliver the product. ScrumMasters lead, support and coach the team.

Each role has a designated leader. Value Seekers are led by the Product Owner. Builders are led by a technical lead or functional lead. The ScrumMaster leads the project as a whole.
