Applying Agile in a Mixed Team
This article is based on a Scrum Alliance Google groups thread called “How to apply scrum in a mixed feature development and SLA-bound bug fixing team.” It compiles most of the solutions that were provided in the thread.
The following Scrum-based options were suggested by group members to overcome the problem in such situations.
* Dedicating members for SE in every sprint
* Shorter sprint
* Divide and conquer
* Single-day sprint
* Hardening sprint
* Understanding the root cause of maintenance issues
* Automating your testing
* Code refactoring and maintainability
