At Verisk Insurance Solutions, we use experimentation to find innovative solutions. Recently we experimented with mob programming to resolve multiple impediments which had prevented both flow and high performance. We did most of this, including the preparation, in just a few days; however, it took about two months of thinking, learning, and walking around in circles before we collectively understood and internalized that mob programming would bring us to where we needed to go. The purpose of this session is to help you understand and internalize what mob programming can do through an interactive exercise.
Expected Learning Outcomes: This session will show you how to set up and run a mob programming session, have a better understanding of the roles of each person in preparation and execution of the mob programming session, and why a CTO, product owner, coach, and team member would want to, AT THE VERY LEAST, experiment with mob programming.
