People First Process Second

Everyone who participates in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) wants to do their “best” if given the opportunity and the “best” that we do is always attributed to internalized motivations. These internalized motivations are why we do what we do “best”; it is why we care. But how do we provide individuals the opportunity to do their “best”? We have to find out why they care and help them understand how to use their strengths to do more of what they love to do. That is why I built Strong(ER).

Attendees will understand what they care about in the SDLC and with that knowledge will know how to contribute their strengths to a cross-functional Scrum team to get the job done. More importantly, they will know how to direct their day to day work efforts towards their strengths so they can do what they do best, everyday.

    Kim Hardy did a great job of making a strong case for leveraging the strengths of each team member. While we all appreciate the importance of it, Kim demonstrated a tool that helps pinpoint each person's strength and how to exploit that strength.

    As a project leader, you want to put together the strongest team possible. Using the Optimization Report select a Product Owner, a Scrum Master and multiple developers and show your team that they have everything they need to get the job done - on day one!

    What do you think would happen if software development organizations gave their teams the ability to put their strengths to work in the SDLC? I can tell you what would happen. Software teams would exhibit near perfect performance… over and over again.
