  1. Pretty good summary of Scrum rules. Few more that could be added around

    * Team members are cross functional
    * No hierarchy or classification among(BA, Architect, etc) team members
    * There is one DOD

    1. Venky, what’s a DOD. I’m not familiar with that acronym outside of Department of Defense.

    2. DOD = Definition of “Done” — This is a way of helping a team and its stakeholders understand the gap between what the team delivers every Sprint vs. what would be necessary to have the product increment in a shippable state every Sprint. The DoD usually focuses on quality, non-functional requirements, and non-development activities that are performed to prepare for deployment/delivery.
