  • Steven, There are quite a few books that you might find informative. I'm having a bit of connectivity trouble just now with Amazon, so I'm unable to provide you with direct links. I suggest you look for books on these topics: * Extreme Programming * Scrum * Agile Software Development WIP means "work in process." I'm sorry I didn't explain it clearly. Cheers, Dave --- In...

  • Steven, I think the phrasing of the question indicates some opportunities for improvement in the team's understanding of basic agile values and principles. An agile team collectively owns the stories they commit to deliver in the iteration (note: /they commit to deliver/, not /that are assigned to them/). I understand that commercial "agile" project management software products...

  • IMHO wevouchfor can work because it consists of positive comments. George's idea may be problematic, especially in a litigious country like the US. It is illegal to prevent someone else from earning a living by making negative statements about them. Unless you are prepared to prove in court that your negative statements are objectively factual, and not just your personal opinion or...

  • Hi Gary, Everything you describe sounds great. I second Josh's suggestion about the movable partitions. At two other companies where I happened to be when they set up similar work areas, they used tables and whiteboards that were on casters, and they allowed each team to configure their own common work areas. That seemed to be a Good Thing, generally. Cheers, Dave --- In...

  • Chris, Granted, there's more than one way to form beliefs and more than one way for a person to satisfy himself that something might be worth a try. Healthy skepticism is a good thing, IMO. But all skepticism isn't equally healthy. What would it cost you (or me) to try 90 minute pair switches with a team and learn empirically whether and how well it works? Would that result in...
