The Scrum accountabilities

A Scrum Team consists of the Product Owner, the Developers, and the Scrum Master.
The Product Owner is the one with the vision. He is responsible for maximizing the value of the product. He manages the Product Backlog.
The developers are the people that create a usable increment each Sprint.
The Scrum Master promotes Scrum according to the Scrum Guide. He supports all participants in understanding the Scrum theory, practices, rules, and values.

Change of role

But can you actually slip from one role into another so easily? From Scrum Master to developer or from developer to product owner? It is not quite that simple because the prerequisite is that you have the necessary skills and abilities. Competences are based on knowledge and experience, abilities, on personality traits. A Scrum Master who wants to take over the role of a developer in a Java development team will have a hard time developing in Java. But if the necessary competencies and skills are available, it should be possible.
