When you set up a Scrum team, what do you do with your QAers?
If your Scrum team builds the product and THEN your QAers test it, that’s NOT Agile, and it’s NOT a good use of Scrum, either. Remember, the idea in any given Sprint should be to solve any given backlog item to the point that it is ready to be delivered to a customer by the end of the Sprint.
If the Sprint includes every part of the development process, then all of the skills needed to go from concept to customer should be part of your Scrum team. So, should QAers be on the Scrum team? ABSOLUTELY!
