What is a Squad (Scrum)?

05/15/2023 | By: FDS

A squad is a term used within the agile working methodology Scrum. A squad refers to a small, self-organized, and cross-functional group of people working together on a specific project or product.

A squad in Scrum typically consists of 5-10 people, including developers, designers, testers, and other professionals necessary to achieve the common goal. Each squad typically has a Scrum Master, who is responsible for ensuring that the Scrum methodology is followed and that the team is supported.

The idea behind a squad is to enable an effective and efficient way of working by having the team be self-organized and have all the necessary skills to work on the project from start to finish. A squad works in short iterations, called sprints, and continuously works to improve the product or project to ensure that it meets the needs and requirements of the customer.
