The SESAR Work Packages B, C and 16.6 apply scrum on the level of the work package management. The scrum methodology has been adapted in the framework of the SESAR programme so it can be used on the level of the work package management.
Scrum contains a set of predefined processes and roles. The main roles in Scrum and their equivalents in the framework of SESAR are: 1.the “ScrumMaster”, who maintains the processes, in SESAR it is the the Sub-Work Package Manager x.00
2.the “Product Owner”, who represents the stakeholders and the business; this role is performed by the SJU Programme Manager of the Work Package
3.the “Team”, a cross-functional group who do the actual analysis, design, implementation, testing, etc.; the project managers of the Work Package represent the team
