My dev team consists of:
2 developers 1 QA tester 1 Scrum master (me)
Currently the QA tester is part of the scrum team, however I do not make him follow a strict sprint from not having a lot of work. Whereas I protect the dev team from outside interference since they have a lot of work to do.
Since he is only active once work has been completed which is generally at the start or end of the day, he does other tasks when he is idle. Hence, we have just set a time at the start of the day and end of the day for 1 hour to do QA.
Is this ok?
