Have you ever noticed how, when QA reports a “defect” developers tend to bristle? I first noticed this in myself a few years ago. Now that I’m functioning as a Scrum coach, I’m noticing it in others. Is there a way to have some kind of quality checking in our code that doesn’t make the whole process feel so adversarial? I think so.
I believe there are some adjustments that need to be made organizationally and personally that will bring these two groups together.
But first, why does this problem exist in the first place?
