Limited Capacity filling up

Truck number or bus factor is “the size of the smallest set of people in a project such that, if all of them got hit by a truck, the project would be in trouble.” Disruptions routinely happen on software teams and have large impact on productivity. Teams thrive by actively sharing knowledge across a team and cross-training key skills.
In this workshop, you will assess how well your team is distributing knowledge within the team. Then you will discuss practices to help the team improve its ability to distribute knowledge. I have observed teams survive massive disruptions by following three collaborating development practices. We’ll discuss how to apply these practices to your team.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will develop a proactive strategy for distributing knowledge throughout the team. In addition to the participant’s generated solution, participants will see how Pivotal’s practices of Continuous Pair Programming, Overlapping Pair Rotation, and Knowledge Pollination enable Pivotal teams to survive large disruptions. Teams might pretend that disruptive events are not going to happen to them, but that’s not a reality in software development techniques.
