Get an overview of the different ownership models in the architecture and learn about the importance of trust in adopting a particular ownership model in an agile team.

Trust and ownership

A typical agile team relies on trust in terms of ownership. This means that everybody on the team is responsible for all the artifacts, including code. There is no explicit ownership for any artifact, only trust in every team member taking his or her responsibility seriously. So, whenever an artifact needs to be changed for further improvement, everybody is able to do so.

This occasionally leads to arguments when introducing agile processes, even in small teams. With large teams, people usually claim that this is neither practical nor feasible.
