      Hi Ron,

      I concur. I always advise team members to at  least specialize on two skills as an early target. Eventually moving towards better cross functionality.

      In the end, I would rather treat consultants as coaches who can accelerate the team's learning. It's for the team to decide how fast they can learn from them. Although I don't discount the possibility of consultants to actually commit some work. But would favor the former almost always.

      The same is true within the team's own skills. If there is only one specialist, there will be queues and idle time waiting for that service. Here, too, the team is wise to spread the knowledge.

      I'm really pissed off by what people are passing off as "agile" these days.
