Whew! There, I said it, and now I feel a little bit better.
For years I’ve been coaching agile teams and one of the themes I’ve been emphasizing is:
- Sitting together at open tables
- Face-to-face collaboration
- Pairing: pair-programming, pair-testing
- Whiteboard, post-it notes, and flip charts
Have all been terms that I’ve emphasized during this time. I’ve pushed and tried to inspire teams to break down the walls and tooling and to sit together to build great products.
