Actually, It IS All About You

(PDF: 94KB / 10 pages) (originally presented at the PNSQC, October 13, 2008) If we really want to improve the way we develop software, we need to start by understanding the team itself: what each participant brings to the table. We need to bring all this out into the open, discuss our shared goals, reflect on our cultural distinctions, and leverage our combined strengths.

The better we understand each other on the team, the stronger our trust will be. Our relationships will be more genuine, and our interactions will be more effective. With a consciously managed inventory of our skills, experiences and attitudes, we are better equipped to select which approach will be most effective and how to deploy this refined approach with the team.
