Product as your own Baby!! – A Live Coaching

Like how a mother takes pride and ownership to nurture her child with utmost care and affection in the view of growing her baby as a responsible & a valuable citizen and like how the Artists/sculptors/weavers consider their product with utmost care to develop a product that lives through time and be of some good value to society, why our software engineers do not seem to have considering their product as their own baby? Why is that pride and ownership culture largely missing? How can we transform this situation and nurture a culture in the minds of software engineers and enable them to create the software with craftsmanship that we can be proud of?

This talk/presentation will address the above questions with live brainstorming sessions with the participants in deriving some reasons and some solutions to this situation, apart from the answers to these questions from my point of view based on my proposal.
