What to do for self-directed package

Since the team is working through these technical practices without technical coaching support, we recommend a full week to work on each behavior shift and to work in pairing or mobbing. Why?

  • We learn better as mobs
  • You are applying the techniques directly in your codebase
  • More time is needed since there is no technical coach

Focusing on one behavior shift at a time ensures a measurable win each week and culminates into a coding mind shift at the end of the month. As such, we recommend following this cadence during each week. Why?

  • We learn better working on one thing at a time
  • The essential aha moments happen through shared experiences
  • Consistency helps the brain build new neural pathways

Perform the following steps to set your team up for success.

  • Everybody sign up to the Slack channel for daily support from Arlo Belshee
  • Set up the reoccurring meetings for watching and discussing the demo videos
  • Set up times for watching and discussing the videos resolving objections
  • Set up the reoccurring meetings for the retrospective
  • Everybody agree on when there is pairing and mobbing and set it up
  • Add to the daily stand-up and progress check-in for that week’s behavior shift
