-Specialization plays an important role in XS projects, as the limited size and duration of such projects often require specific expertise. Therefore, team members should have specific roles to ensure efficiency and effectiveness.

-The entire team should be x-functional according to the XS project bundle and be able to cover all the necessary technical and methodological knowledge.

-Although specialization is important, team members should also be flexible and be able to take on tasks outside their area of expertise if necessary. This promotes a multifunctional team structure.
