Heart of Agile Teams at 10Pines
What makes software development teams great? What are their values? Organizational leaders often struggle with creating the right environment for great software teams to thrive. As a result, the unlimited potential of teams is frequently wasted. While this problem is challenging, you can begin to turn your culture immediately. I will describe our recipe at 10Pines. The answer lies in a recipe of five ingredients which must be carefully measured and attended to:
  • People: at the heart, there’s the people. There cannot be great teams without motivated and capable developers.
  • Great environment: these people need an innovative environment where they can thrive, feel safe and be energized.
  • Vision: teams focus on what needs to be accomplished. Having a shared vision enables our teams to be aligned and collaborate better.
  • Self-organization: starting from this shared vision, we self-organize to devise a plan and work together towards it. Empowerment is the best, for both the products we create and ourselves, as it is the best intrinsic motivator.
  • Communication: last but not least, we need to communicate efficiently. Our Methodology maximizes the bandwidth working in an open-space, shortening feedback cycles and using all available digital tools.
In this presentation for managers you'll learn how one company created a workplace culture where people and teams flourish. Through a combination of storytelling and lecture, come discover how "The Heart of Agile Teams at 10Pines" can be a model for evoking the best in your teams, too.
