What's Wrong with Being Right?

What does it mean to "be right"? Why is "being right" so important to us? Can "rightness" be measured? How do we handle differences in opinion? When you know you're right, but your team doesn't agree, what then? When is "being right" the wrong thing for your team?

Chris Powers ( will offer some answers to these questions while exploring the notion and implications of "being right" in software development teams.
