SCRUM - Before You Stepping In (Part-02)
Let's continue the session with another set of key factors of SCRUM
Dedicated Team You need to have a dedicated team. If your team members are shared with another project or projects (shared resource), there is a high chance for a failure.
Team Size Usually, SCRUM encourages to have 5 to 9 members team. If your team has more than 10 resources, there will be some team management issues. Specifically, there will be time consuming ceremonies and activities.
T-Shaped Resources These type of resources have a deep knowledge in a particular area (vertical line of 'T') and have a broad knowledge of other disciplines (horizontal line of "T").
SCRUM Prefers Feature Teams
Feature Team - Cross Functional
- The team is good enough to implement end to end functionality
- Specialized around specific area (discipline)
- It will be required multiple component teams to implement end-to-end functionality.
