      Mark, this is because they are static flow diagrams. It's obvious that the Spring Backlog content is being processed by the Sprint. So see those as inputs in the sprint (which is the circular drawing).

      I'm sure that you will prefer this one: https://labs.openviewpartners.com/wp-content/uploads/files/2013/05/Scrum-Sprint_sized.jpg

          I vote for your suggestion, but I prefer "Product Development Team" than "Delivery Team".

                I think you missed the point about what a PO is.

                  Excellent point. This would also reduce the ambiguity around the concept of Scrum Goal that is very often overlooked in many of the Scrum implementation I audited.

                    If what they have to say is related to the spring goal and add value to the meeting, why not. If not related the activities that emerges from the sprint backlog, this may add unnecessary complexity in the meeting.

                      I agree that the term Developers is not appropriate in many modern contexts where teams are composed by an increasing variety in profiles. I would replace it by "Professionnals" or a more generic term as the ones suggested by Rob Myers.

                      I also agree with Michael James (MJ) comment about the team. The "Scrum" Team seems less appropriate than the "Development" Team which exist as itself to promote self-organisation and necessary empowerment. I see three problems with the "Scrum" team approach. First, if the PO becomes a member of the team, there is no clear boundaries anymore and some of them may be tempted to interfere with the definition of the development practices which are a responsability of the "Developers" as a team. Secondly, a PO (and a SM) may be a part of multiple different teams working on different products. Thirdly, as a extension to the previous point, a PO in Scrum is clearly more linked to a "Product" than a "Team". In the context of scaling Scrum, a single PO feeding multiples teams is commong and his extended membership will add more confusion to the whole organization.
