It isn't the team with the best people that wins; it's
the people with the best team.
Sound like a cliche? Sometimes it is,
but not when backed up with Individuals and Interactions for 10x Teams. Research shows
that the productivity of software teams operating in the same industries can
vary by a factor of 10 or more -- a difference of "10x". This course develops
high performance, high productivity, high quality interactions, which in turn
supports creation of High Performance, 10x Teams.
The Agile Manifesto
states that, "We value individuals and Interactions over processes and tools."
What does that really mean? This workshop
explains, by diving into the details of human interactions,
including working with different personalities, dealing with conflict,
collaborating effectively, employing team decision making, creating shared vision, and
building high performance teams. It is complementary to the more process-focused
content in Agile practices like Scrum, Kanban, or Construx's 10x Software
Software projects rarely fail for technical
reasons. They fail for reasons related to people. Make sure the people on
your next project have the human interaction skills they need to succeed!
This intensively hands-on workshop focuses on developing excellent interpersonal and teamwork skills among
software professionals, within software project teams, and within
cross-functional teams. This workshop was inspired by the Agile Manifesto's
ideal of valuing "individuals and interactions," but the workshop focuses on
human interactions and is equally valuable to Agile and non-Agile teams.
The software world has been moving toward more collaborative, interpersonal
development modes for a decade. This course provides the human interaction
protocols needed to maximize the value produced by those collaborations and
Who Should Attend

members participate individually.
