What this is

This Team Member Glossary briefly describes typical Software Release team roles and who is responsible for important areas of the overall release.


Why it's useful

The glossary explains the job description more thoroughly than just the job title. Since different companies have different job titles for some of the same jobs, this will help identify the correct role within your own company.

In smaller environments, some people may be "wearing multiple hats". Similar jobs can be combined in the smaller environments and the glossary can help you determine this.

If you modify the Software Release Overview templates or Software Release Work Breakdown template for use within your own company, this glossary can help you change the job titles in those documents to ones that your company uses or combine them into something more appropriate for your environment.


How to use it

  • While using other Software Release Life Cycle templates on the site, you may encounter a job title that is not familiar to you. Look it up in the glossary for a better understanding of the job.
  • If you're currently executing a software release, scan the Team Member Glossary to see if there are roles that your team does not have defined. Do you need to fill some additional team positions to have a full software release team?
  • The site includes a Microsoft Project file that is a Software Release Work Breakdown template - all the phases and deliverables in a full release schedule. This glossary includes a column identifying the abbreviation used for that role in the MS Project "Resource" column.

Note: since different companies use different terms for certain positions, the glossary includes more than one typical term for certain team members and cross-references the reader to the related fully-defined entry.
