Example text

For example, in Chap. ’ would be invited as needed to sprint meetings (adding to the responsibilities of the PO or Scrum Master). Also in Chap. 2, one PO decides on a case by case basis how to involve external partners who are part of an extended development team. The resulting virtual organization requires upfront design and subsequent co-ordination. Chapter 9 argues that the whole team should be involved in user communications, which requires feedback channels to be in place. While this could mean a broad project team or a development team within it, the intention is that developers are involved.

4, only an R&D prototype was needed as a deliverable. Chapter 6’s educational setting enabled open source practices, bonds of community, interns, student evaluations and other important participative practices. However, the funder’s values introduced hierarchy and formality that limited the extent and form of participation. The project management team retained overall control and steered the direction of the project, appointing “champions” for each of the eight apps developed. In Chap. 7, agile teams had value expectations for enterprise software users that turned out to be incorrect: users’ values were not predominantly instrumental.

Along with users’ initial inability to track problem tickets, this lowered expectations that did not improve once the use of GitHub did make problem tickets visible. Also, developers could not easily search GitHub. Online tools for communication with users and customers are becoming vital to effective development of digital products and services. A quality infrastructure needs to be in place before any development sprint releases a version to customers. This is not an area where difficulties can simply be refactored out in a later sprint.
