Self forming teams at scale

I want to share with you all a strange thing that we do.  It’s unorthodox but has been very successful for us. Teams change.  People come.  People go.  People move around.  Reorgs happen.  This is a fact of life, particularly in any large organization, and something managers spend a fair amount of time on – recruiting, re-recruiting, managing, developing, etc. Many years ago (I want to say around 2008), we had a reorg to do.  In general, we do them every couple of years, usually associated with some big milestone/inflection, and use them to rebalance, apply talent to
the new problems, fund new projects, etc.  Well, back in 2008, I had a guy on my team named Chris Shaffer – one of the better people managers/team morale managers I’ve worked with.  He came forward with a crazy proposal. The Crazy Proposal Chris’s idea was this.  Don’t do the reorg.  Let people decide what they want to work on.  Concretely, he proposed a process where we’d get the whole team in the room.  We’d write the list of “feature teams”, investment areas, business priorities or whatever else you want to call it on a whiteboard and give...(Read whole news on source site)

In response for my previous post, Eric had the folowing comment (well, tweet): I guess some baskets last longer or some eggs don't seem to rot e.g. C, C++, SQL, Java*, etc And that is true, in some sense of the word. In other words, there isn't any expected shortage of C or C++ opportunities anywhere in the medium to long future. The problem is that this isn't the same language, framework or enviornment over time. In the late 90s / early 2000s I was deep into C++. I read Effective C++ and More Effective C++, I gone through the entire STL with a
fine tooth comb, and I was a pretty enthusiastic (and bad) C++ developer. But let assume that I was a compotent C++ dev in the late 90s. What was the environment like at the time? Pretty much all 32 bits, STL was still a hotly debated topic. MFC and ATL were all the rage, and making the C++ compiler die via template meta programming was extremely common. COM and Windows DNA were all the rage.  Assume that you freeze the knoweldge at that time, and skip forward 15 years. Where are you at? Modern C++ has embraced STL, then moved beyond it to...(Read whole news on source site)

Microsoft have released a […] The post Why Visual Studio 2015 has changed my life appeared first on DeveloperHandbook.com.
