Today, a colleague of mine, Norbert Hölsken, started off a discussion in our internal communication channel. He asked:
How do you treat bugs on the taskboard that are found during testing? Create a new test for each bug, and put the test task back in ToDo? Or create a bug, and a bug-follow-up testing task?
As it turns out there are a lot of valid reasons to do it one way or another. Yet, the answer “it depends” does not help – neither a Scrum Coach, nor a tester working in a Scrum environment. So, I started raising some of my experiences and concerns, and some of my other colleagues replied as well.
Skip forward three hours, and I am writing a blog entry on my thoughts about it.
