Abstract

Beautiful Teams

What's it like to work on a great software development team facing an impossible problem? How do you build an effective team? Can a group of people who don't get along still build good software? How does a team leader keep everyone moving on track when the stakes are high and the schedule is tight?

Andrew Stellman and Jennifer Greene answer these questions in their new book, Beautiful Teams: Inspiring and Cautionary Tales from Veteran Team Leaders. In this presentation, they show how veteran team leaders build great teams by understanding people, goals, practices and obstacles. They draw on personal stories from the leading programmers, architects, project managers and thought leaders who contributed to the book.
