I have been formalising our IT method. Pretty much a scrumban approach but I still need to document where each artefact and ceremony should be produced or occur.
The basics are
- kick off
- requirements gathering
- project retrospective
One of the Business Analysts has proposed a project mandate document for the proposal phase. This to me seems too onerous for a proposal, especially the section entitled Quality Expectations
Quality Expectations Define the Customer’s Quality Expectations with reference to the relative importance of time, cost and quality of the product so that future decisions may based on what factor is paramount to the project's success.
Am I missing something, but to ask the Product Owner what their quality expectations are given that my whole philosophy is not to compromise on quality unless part of a managed technical debt process whereby payback will happen as a matter of course, seems like a ridiculous proposition.
So, the question is ...
Is it acceptable to ask a Product Owner
What level of quality are you expecting from this solution?
