Testers often find their new home in the Scrum team as functional team members. Because Scrum teams shift focus from writing about requirements to talking about them, testers now need to ask questions about the product and its features, delving into how they add or detract from the overall product. In Scrum, conversations with the product owner become the tester’s primary way of finding out how a new feature should behave. A tester is likely to talk with the product owner about how a feature should work, how quickly it should perform, what acceptance criteria must be passed and so on.
