What is the Role of a Guardian at Squads?

What is a Guardian at Squads? The Guardian is a team role in connection with a project. The Guardian is the first point of contact for you as a client regarding the project that the team does for you. He/she is responsible for the successful delivery of the project sprints and your overall engagement with the team.

The Guardian does:

  • Facilitate the clients business;
  • Advocate the clients business goals;
  • Have the overview of the project;
  • Help the client set SMART sprint goals;
  • Confirms deployment after testing is cleared;
  • Discusses sprint acceptance, planning, and budget.

The Guardian doesn’t:

  • Manage the project and team in traditional sense;
  • Lead the team;
  • Estimate the necessary budget alone.
