RE: [scrumdevelopment] Re: How do you keep the product architecture sound with multiple teams
- Why do those UI design look slightly different on different screens? Is it because of colour differences between screens? (I know I have often seen my presentations look quite different, colour-wisem when I get to the conference room). Is it because of dofferences in rendering using IE, Firefox etc.?
Or do the design differences come as a result of essentially the same screen being developed independantly by each team, thus duplicating or triplicating the development effort?
In some cases, the potential for differences should have been identified and standards stated before development started. In some cases there is nothing you can do about it. In the 'independant design' situation you just gotta be better organised and cut-out the duplicated effort.

One example is reusable UI components. Separate teams needed such control, so they created it. During the review the PO noticed that the control looks slightly different on different screens.
This also happens with other more fundamental functionality. So far we are running massive refactoring sprints to clean up the redundant code and improve the architecture. Is this right? From the outside it looks like the teams don't know what they are doing and they have to spend time doing "rework" (I know this is not agile term :-)
