OR will you still mark the story as done with defects. 5. A particular project is prolonged for almost 3 months since it was having a lot of dependencies based on the older technology being used earlier. Do you find this situation particularly challenging for you to address, have you come across a similar situation before. 6. You development team has been working with traditional legacy software development process and product. However a scrum team was set up very newly and have not yet acquired the required knowledge about the old platform. That was the reason all the sprints have finished with low velocity and without substantial results. What will be your plan of action to help the team achieve success?
