Consequently, each gradually improves his or her understanding about that aspect. l The role scheme supports the thinking of the development process on multiple levels of abstraction (see Chapter 8, Abstraction). Since abstraction is a key component of software development, every mechanism that supports team members’ thinking in terms of different levels of abstraction should be enhanced. On the one hand, each team member sees his or her development task on a relatively low level of abstraction; and on the other hand, the personal role of each team member enables each of them to gain a global overview of the developed system on a higher level of abstraction.

Suggest ways to solve these problems. Suggest agile principles and practices that can support such cases. 4 A Role Scheme in Agile Teams According to Humphrey (2000), a team consists of at least two people who are working towards a common goal/objective/mission, in which each person has been assigned a specific role to perform and in which a completion of the mission requires some form of dependency among team members (p. 19). In the case of a software project, a team is a group of individuals who have gathered to produce a software product.

This aspect gets high importance, especially in academia, since the team members are usually not familiar with each other prior to this course. With respect to the development itself, the purpose of the first iteration is to produce an outline for the project so as to enable additions and improvements during the second and third iterations. By the time of the second iteration, the learners are more relaxed and more familiar with the development method and with their teammates, and most of them invest the effort to increase and improve their project outcomes.
