Role (resource)

A role is simple way of defining the different types of individuals in your organization who are participating in all of the events related to a task plan. From planning the project (a project manager, business analyst, program manager, and so on), doing the actual work defined in the task plan (Web developer, QA tester, technical writer, scrum master, senior architect, and so on), and approving the results (executive sponsor, client, and so on).
