Scrum Team Is Cross-Functionalfleeting
scrum team is cross-functional
deliver Done Increments on a consistent basis (the true meaning of cross-functionality).
cross-functional means that the team has all the skills necessary to turn Product Backlog Items into a done Increment. It does not mean that each member has all these skills.
idea of Scrum is not to force someone into coding who has been testing all his life and is just before retirement. It is rather to encourage teams to overcome silos of traditional disciplines, learn more and be more robust against unexpected changes
newly formed scrum team where stakeholders were expecting QA to write code - because “scrum says all team members are developers”. I believe that’s a misinterpretation.
Another effective way to make it “one team” is to ensure that, team understands the fact that accountability lies with entire team, not indivisual. So a coder can write excellent code but if QA misses to test it properly & defect gets caught by end customer, both coder & QA must take joint accountability & responsibility.
