In our work with Scrum Teams, we find that many don't know where to start. Or worse, they give up and resign to the situation. In this series, we're offering a toolbox of tried-and-tested experiments to improve together. Most experiments are bundled in the Zombie Scrum Survival Guide.
How does this help your team?
Is your team experiencing bottlenecks because only one person is capable of testing work? Is a developer on your team struggling to implement something that is blocking everyone else until she is done? Do team members start work on unrelated and low-value tasks simply because they have nothing else to do? These symptoms arise when teams are not cross-functional enough, causing work to pile up for some people and creating delays for others.
This experiment offers your team practical strategies to help them improve their cross-functionality.
