Re: [scrumdevelopment] Digest Number 405
____________________________________________________We don't use a sustaining team. Development must eat their own dog food. If there are bugs, they go on the backlog list with everything else.In general it is better to get developers to own system components. Anything breaks, they fix it. This allows experience eyes on fixes which may cause refactoring into a better component and provides motivation to developers to deliver clean code.Jeff Sutherland-------Original Message-------How should a team handle sustaining when following the Scrum process? Ourorganization does not have a sustaining team that the development team canhand the system off to. So the development team is required to perform newdevelopment (continue work as usual sprint after sprint) as well as sustainthe system that resides in production.
