This course is canceled. However, you can meet Woody in his Master Class in our Leading Complexity Program starting October 2024. There is also an opportunity to organize an in-house event.

Software teaming (Mob Programming) 1-day workshop with Woody Zuill.

Would you be interested in investigating, exploring, and trying a way of working that might give you:

  • Shorter lead times?
  • Fewer bugs?
  • More knowledge transfer?
  • Shorter feedback loops?
  • Happier co-workers who know each other better?
  • A climate in the team that improves our ability to contribute well? – a decreased need for status and planning meetings?
  • An environment of amplified learning?
  • An effective way of onboarding new team members?

Then this Software Teaming (Mob Programming) 1-day workshop is for you.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites, and people do not need to be able to program.  We do a programming exercise, but I’ve done this with 10 year old children who have never programmed, and teams of just managers who have also never programmed.  I have done this workshop for people who do design, testing, and other specialties. 

Software teaming is for everyone involved in software creation – so I often have testers, UX designers, database experts, product experts and owners, and almost all skill areas used in software development.  In almost all of the workshops I do include folks who do not do programming.
