How do you coach teams in software craftsmanship practices when you are "Not Technical"? We assume our teams are addressing and improving their technical practices on an ongoing basis... and we all know what happens with assumptions!!! If the teams are not paying attention to their technical practices, the codebase is going to be a mess so big and so deep and so tall, you can not clean it up. Life will be BAD! How do you keep an agile team from losing productivity and not hyper-productively making a mess? Teams may not know where to get started adopting practices, but what can you do about it when you're "Not Technical"??
In this workshop, Allison and Pradeepa will create a knowledge sharing and learning environment where attendees will play a series of games to have an increased awareness of technical practices. Attendees will have a deeper understanding of technical practices and feel more comfortable introducing them in their organizations. Allison and Pradeepa will also introduce a bunch of tips and techniques for leveraging the technical expertise inside or outside the organization.
This session will help non-technical Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, and other leaders feel more confident introducing technical practices to their teams and leadership. Attendees will take away strategies to support their organization in enhancing their technical practices.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify technical practices that support software development.
  • Introduce or leverage technical expertise inside or outside the organization.
  • Play a bunch of games to understand some technical practices.
  • Take these games and apply them in their organization.
  • Increase awareness and ability to participate and be around some technical discussions.
