31713Re: Performance measurement of team members?

I have seen this this happen naturally, but not to the extreme you
describe. The underperforming member gets put only on tasks that are
off the critical path to getting a story done, and other team members
avoid pairing situations with them.
I will add another twist - what if this person's pay-rate is out of
proportion to their responsibilities and productivity within the team?
