Regarding Testing on Last Day of sprint

Postby kshitij_y Sun Feb 05, 2017 6:07 pm

In Scrum sprint, while completing the last story in the sprint, Tester may not able to test the story in the same sprint as he/she get the same on last day, What should be the better approach for this.

A user story is marked 'Done' only when it is end to end completed. If testing is pending then other team members need to come up to support the user story complete. The Scrum believes that each team member has to expert in one and master in other skill sets. Developers are expert in coding, but they can contribute in testing if needed. Information sharing in co-located environment makes the team master in other stuff also.

If it i s not possible then that story should go to the Product Backlog as it is not completed.

Just one story is pending at last day....this is the very common situation and that is why team collaboration is important.

Few points you may like to consider.

1. We should ensure that team should not run Mini waterfall in sprint, mean we should not do design , development and testing flow inside the sprint. This can be ensured by developing / delivering Done stories across the sprint duration.

2. During the last few days of Sprint, we are not expected to initiate new product backlog its which team can not finish it , so if we know that story developed on last day can not met definition of Done better we do not start that backlog its.

3. You may think my developers may have capacity available during the last day of sprint, it is possible and this capacity can be used to help test the done stories or to do explorations work for upcoming sprint.

4. The Agile / Scrum does not ensure 100% allocation of Developers till last day of sprint, the goal is 100% completion of Sprint Goal and delivering the Deliverable Increment at the end of sprint.

5. Many team use term called CODE FIX, which they do 2 days before the sprint end date, after code fix point no new code gets added in sprint increment.

You can explore practice like code fix if needed.
