Are you a business analyst or project manager struggling to fit in with an agile development team? Project Managers and Business Analysts have seen significant changes in their roles and they are not alone; many roles have evolved with the transition to Agile methods. It’s time to stop struggling to find where you fit it in software development and map out your personal strategy for career growth.
Over the past ten years, I worked with over a hundred development teams and they all had one common characteristic: they typically didn’t use pair programming as a technique to deliver software. Some teams talked about pair programming and liked the idea of it, but for some reason(s) they still didn’t pair. This raises the question so why won’t they pair? In my experience there are many obstacles to pair programming and collaboration. Many teams cooperate very well but don’t actually collaborate. Collaboration is a key aspect of pair programming, as it trust.
