At the daily standup meeting, the agile team has raised an impediment where one of the developer's line manager has withdrawn the developer to complete previously committed tasks on another project. As a result, the team will be unable to meet their sprint goal.
What should have been done differently to avoid this situation?
A. The team should have considered human resources availability while planning the sprint.
B. The team should have worked faster than usual during the sprint before the developer was withdrawn.
C. The project should have had a large agile team to compensate for the unplanned impediments.
D. The line manager should not have let the developer work on the new agile project in the first place.
Hint: Dependencies based on people are sometimes overlooked
Prioritization of work is not solely based on the customer value. There are other factors to consider, such as risks, dependencies between user stories, and resource availability. Considering human resources availability while planning the sprint would most likely have helped the team to avoid the situation described in the scenario.
