Advanced Software Teaming [Mob Programming]
Software Teaming (Mob Programming) is a cost-effective, collaborative and fun way to get work done together. It's a whole-team approach to development, where coding, designing, testing, and working with the "customer" (partner, Product Owner, User, etc.) is all done as a team.
In this session we'll cover some of the important ideas that I used as guidelines in conceptualizing creating software as team. The 4 main points I'll touch on are:
1 - Make it Easy for everyone to excel
2 - Turn Up The Good on the things that are going well
3 - The Failure to Communicate (and a little on how to deal with this)
4 - Leading from Within - the need for each of us to lead and follow dynamically
With these things in mind, we were exploring ways to improve our ability to collaborate, and landed on the idea of Mob Programming / Software Teaming. However, these ideas have been meaningful to me in finding ways to improve our work environment.
We'll learn some important things to consider when we are interested in improving our work environment.
