  • Each role on the Council is staffed by two individuals, using the practice of "pair leadership". Doing so provides the following benefit:
    • Redundancy - If one person is temporarily too busy with their regular full-time, or is on vacation, the other person can continue moving their team forward.
    • Dynamic Feedback - Agilists believe in the higher quality output that comes from individuals working together during execution. We see this everyday when we ask our co-workers for "another set of eyes to look at a problem".
  • Each role on the Council is staffed by a pair of equals.
  • The titles "Product Owner" and "ScrumMaster" are borrowed from the Scrum project management framework.
