Team Level

Flow_TeamLevelThe Team Level is composed of development teams and shared services. Each development team is composed of the developers, testers, analysts and SMEs required to produce and implement a Business value increment, for quality assurance, and continuous incremental improvement. A team’s work is composed of the stories and tasks for a specific release, enhancements, production support, and maintenance requests.

Skills needed in a team typically include analysis, design, code, build, deploy, testing, acceptance, validation, and implementation. Extended skills needed might include: Architecture and design, build and release management (environments), SEO, and subject matter/domain expertise (technical, Business, and customer).
