Trust Me! Building Trust in Development Teams

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Trust is an integral component of high performing Agile software development teams. We know that.  This workshop explores trust within a team through exercises that underscore the importance of trust, help you understand trust relationships, then help you strengthen those relationships.

Your guided experience through the landscape of trust begins as you enter the workshop.  Bring a dollar bill to the session for a lesson about the importance of trust in ambiguous circumstances.

Next, we practice a retrospective technique that assesses the level of trust present in a team.  Think you have a high trust team?  You’ll know for sure after you run this exercise with your team.

A successive team retrospective exercise analyzes existing trust relationships in a very detailed way.  The "Trust Map" that results is a roadmap to guide trust development in low trust teams or to foster insightful dialog in high trust teams.

Finally, we offer a clear approach to building team trust.  One that empowers each person to be their best and to assume a team leadership role aligned with their abilities.

You will find no silver bullet in this workshop.  Instead, you will leave with tools that, when conscientiously applied, will help you assess, analyze, and improve the trust level of your team.
