You will say whats new in this… everybody know that working in teams is lot more effective then working individually. Well i must say i am not going to write anything new but what i am writing here are the points which everyone knows but only few of us follows. The success of a team depends totally on the attitude of team members. I just want to highlight some points to remember as a member of an agile team…
Learn to Listen
Want people to listen to you…then first start listening to them.
Criticize idea not People
If there’s a substantial risk that you will be ridiculed or that you’ll lose face for suggesting an idea, you won’t be inclined to offer another suggestion.
Only outcome is important not credit/blame
In the end only result is what is worth so individual credit/blame are all exercise to kill precious time actually.
Quick fixes become Quicksand
As said above outcome is important.A minor quick fix can revert the whole result in a big picture.Never ever go for it.
Understand Pareto’s Principle
Pareto’s Principle, the 80/20 Rule, should serve as a daily reminder to focus 80 percent of your time and energy on the 20 percent of you work that is really important. Don’t just “work smart”, work smart on the right things. 🙂
In last Remember the team work’s motto “none of us is as good as all of us“.
See my favourite example of teamwork… 😉
