We recently adopted a new management methodology that says there are no roles on the team (a "cross-functional" team where "all team members are developers") and everyone should we doing everything so we now have UX designers and QA engineers trying to ship code with some copy paste and online courses.
I have never been a manager before and I am not a manager of these people but since we have half the team suddenly becoming developers and as the only actual software developer (sorry if pejorative, but none of these people have written code before) not just ignoring newbie slack messages I am not getting anything done.
It doesn't help that each developer has a certain number of points required per sprint and there is no difference between people based on experience. The newbie developers really shouldn't have the same point expectation as people who have coded for years.
I approached my manager, but the project management method has been dictated from the top. Manager is also a dev and doesn't really want to deal with it. His manager finds the methodology strange but isn't willing to go against the people with the certs. Basically I dont think it can really be changed all that much so I need to learn how to work within the framework.
What are my options for dealing with this? How do you manage an army of really green people and get useful code out of them?
