Re: [scrumdevelopment] Multiple P.O.'s / Team or Single P.O./ Team with Multiple Products ?
- HI Micheal,First a couple clarifying questions:1. is the technology homogenous, or mixed (java, C#, rails, etc)2. Is there an existing mapping of team:product now? In other words do the existing teams have ownership, either explicitly through designated ownership or implicitly through something like tech expertise?This is a *very* poignant question as my organization is currently forming a 4th engineering team; there will thus be 3 teams working on a WOA/platform architecture solution set that is heterogeneous between java and rails. We have yet to commit to a specific approach to how many backlogs, and how teams will pull from those backlog(s), as well as to what degree the teams should be generalists or specialist on the tech stacks and code bases. This of course doesn't even get into the cultural differences across the teams. Oh, and we're our org is distributed across the continental US...Anyhow, I'll be reading answers to your questions with much interest ;)-kOn Apr 25, 2012, at 2:36 PM, Michael Tibbert wrote:
