What differentiates a successful software development culture?
Almost all of us have been on a high performance team. Typically, it was a team for which we worked harder - but from which we took away more exhilaration and joy than at any other time in our careers. What made it so? And what can we do to get it again?
Ron Lichty thinks successful software development cultures are ones that are not just performant but that also both delight customers and are a joy for every team member to be part of.
One of the characteristics that differentiates agile cultures is that (finally!), it’s not just managers who are responsible for crafting culture; every one of us engages in the crafting of it. Scrum offers each of us the promise of a stellar team experience, provided we step up to make it so.
In this session, Ron guides us through learning:
• What constitutes and characterizes a dream team?
• What’s the connection between agile teams and dream teams?
• What differentiates great agile teams from mediocre ones?
• What’s the role of managers, product managers, product owners, program managers and scrum masters in fostering dream teams?
• What’s the role of team members in fostering dream teams?
