SPaMCAST 525 continues our conversation about story points.  Many teams find that story points are only a partially useful tool to facilitate the flow of work within a team. Today we will highlight a behavioral fix and talk RATS.

We will also have a visit from Jeremy Berriault with a discussion from the QA Corner.  Jeremey and I talked about how the concept of a minimum viable product (MVP) impacts testing.  Check out Mr. Berriault’s blog at https://qacorner.blog/
