Some teams seem to have some mysterious chemistry from the beginning. Other teams wallow, bicker, and slog their way to uncertain results. What makes one team soar, and another stumble? It's not just chance.
In this session, you'll experience what it's like to work on a team that is set up for success--or one that starts with the deck stacked against them. We'll explore the essential ingredients that result in that mysterious "chemistry." For example, we’ll examine the prerequisites for cohesion, and factors that pull teams apart. We'll look at myths and realities of software teams.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify the essential elements for great teams.
  • Strategies to adapt the environment to improve the chance of team success.
  • Identify common pitfalls for agile teams.
