Have you ever been pairing with someone and they have an idea so they take the keyboard from you to show you how something is done? It breaks the driver-navigator relationship in two — the navigator becomes both the navigator and the driver, causing all sorts of problems. To offset these types of situations, Maaret Pyhäjärvi and Llewellyn Falco have come up with a process they call "strong-style pairing." It puts the right people in the right roles when pairing to ensure full engagement from all parties, build trust, and promote better collaboration.
