My Finco is a large successful company that has been using technology to run its business for over 4 decades now.

Yeddy is a Scrum Master with a team which has some people who have specialized in the systems that are running for years on the mainframe, a set of team members who over the last 8 – 10 years have become the plumbers with the data warehouse. Finally, the team has now added a few data scientists who are trying to build AI algorithms to predict and recommend actions before it’s too late.

These three sets of people have very different skills. In a given sprint, Yeddy finds that the team’s velocity is not predictable because of this diversity (cross skilling is a nice idea but not practical for a couple of more years). What would you do if you are Yeddy?
