Optimizing For Collaboration: Unlocking The Continuous Fountain of Ideas (GeePaw Hill)

In his work addressing the complexity of software development, GeePaw has identified four "separations" of the larger problem, areas we seek to optimize for maximum performance: Drive, Sustenance, Pathfinding, and Collaboration. In this session, we'll take a brief overview of that work, then focus in on optimizing for collaboration. The scarce resource in the geek trade is ideas. Fortunately, collaboration provides a nearly infinite source. As such, we need to take special pains to arrange our structure and process to enable F2D2: Frequent Focused Direct Dialog. We'll consider a variety of ways we can enable & encourage collaboration in and across our teams. This will be a short talk followed by a good long wrangle: come prepared to opine!

Learning Outcomes:
  • * The "Color Separation" approach to addressing complexity.
  • * The F2D2 Goal
  • * Collaboration Modes and Heat Maps
  • * Tricks for Breaking Structures
