What is the role of organization in Scrum?

As we know, organization is one of the Scrum aspects that must be managed and addressed throughout the Scrum project. It deals with the roles and responsibilities in a Scrum project, which is very important if we want to successfully implement Scrum.
So, we have to learn the various facets of a Scrum project organization as well as core and non-core roles and how to form high performance Scrum Teams.

Organization, as defined in the Scrum Body of Knowledge (SBOK™), is applicable to Portfolios, programs, and/or projects in any industry, Products, services, or any other results to be delivered to business stakeholders and Projects of any size or complexity.
The term “product” in this Body of Knowledge may refer to a product, service, or other deliverable. Scrum can be applied effectively to any project in any industry—from small projects or teams with as few as six team members to large, complex projects with up to several hundred team members.
To learn about the aspect organization, we have to understand a few key areas. They are-
Roles Guide—identifies which section or subsection is important for a Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Scrum Team.
Scrum Project Roles— covers all the key core and non-core roles associated with a Scrum project.
Product Owner— highlights the key responsibilities of the Product Owner in relation to a Scrum project.

It also highlights the specific responsibilities of the Scrum Team members in relation to communication, integration, and working with the corporate and program management teams.
