We all have been hearing about cross functional teams for a while now, but have you heard about cross functional individual?

I used to be called Agile Tester, later Quality Coach, working with Agile Developers... now we are all Product Engineers. Used to work within a team where everyone had their unique role... now we're all the same. Used to have very well defined boundaries of responsibilities, now they're loose. Used to meet my goals. Now we all have one goal. The product.

This is a story of a person who one day was working as a tester to wake up next day to be told, we no longer have testers. This is a story of developer who woke up the same day, and was told he is the tester... the devops... the analyst. How it impacted all of us.

Although we were all prepared for this to happen one day. Coaching and mentoring others in our roles, and being coached and mentored by others. We weren't quite ready.

Why it was good decision.. or bad decision.. or really I don't know, and why I need you to tell me. Is Product Engineering the future of cross functional teams?
