Re: Do we need QA in Scrum?
      06/13/07 08:45 AM

When I was on a Scrum Team QA was embedded, but unlike your definition of the Team, I don't see them not being QA anymore as much as I would not say a Developer is not a Developer anymore because he is on the Team. Part of Scrum is about skill sets and what you bring to the Team, sure Developers can write tests but they will more than likely be targeted Unit Tests; I have yet to see a Developer who has spent time writing a System Test.

If you want something external, a good need is having an integration group, Scrum sprints focus on the sashimi and while that may evolve over time you do need time to pull all that sashimi together and make the whole fish. Someone needs to check that fish, perhaps its QA?
