My Us and Them Workshop

· Agile Zone

Discover how to increase change awareness, code quality, and maintainability through straightforward code reviews, with a simple, lightweight workflow, brought to you in partnership with JetBrains.

I love this workshop. I ran it at Scrum Gathering Paris and it seemed to work beautifully again. There were some great ideas about how we can start to overcome the "us and them" mentality. My favorite suggestion came from one guy in the bar afterwards (sorry I didn’t catch your name) who said, “The most powerful thing you can do to make a connection is ask for help”. We also discussed NVC. :)

I have the slides up on GitHub. Click on the circles in the second slide for the full effect.

I’d love to give the workshop again, so if you know of an opportunity please let me know. For those who have taken part in it already, please let me know if it’s made a difference in any way.
