A Team in LeSS is the same as a Team in one-team Scrum. The goal of the team in LeSS is to add a couple of Product Backlog Items into the Product during the Sprint. They work closely with customers/users on clarifying the definition of the items and with the Product Owner on the prioritization. They coordinate and integrate their work with other teams so that at the end of the Sprint they will together have produced one whole product increment .

Well-structured Teams

In LeSS each team:

  • is self-managing
  • is cross-functional — all skills required are inside the team or the team can acquire them
  • shares responsibility for all the team’s work
  • has a shared team goal
  • has responsibility for managing its own relationships with external teams and people
