Teams, what’s in it for me?

Agile talks a lot about self-organized teams, where developers and testers work together to deliver software. But what can you do to make teams succeed? This talk explores why people would like to work in teams, what managers can do to enable a team structure and culture, and how to (not) manage agile teams.

What would attendees learn:

  • What is an agile team (and what not)
  • Why would you as a developer want to work in a team, what’s in it for me
  • Which benefits do teams have for organizations, stakeholders, customers, etc
  • How to manage teams, the do’s and don’ts
  • How developers, managers, and business people, can effectively communicate and collaborate
