Building Mob Programming Teams Using Lego® Serious Play®
In recent years the idea of Mob Programming has begun to attract the attention of those looking for new ways to take advantage of the genius that can be found in a focused, cross-functional, and unified agile team. But how, in practice, do these teams actually work? Paul Wynia, a Lego® Serious Play® facilitator and agile coach, worked closely with the originators of Mob Programming to develop a fun and simple Lego® game that incorporates the basic concepts, approaches, and roles found in an effective Mob Programming team. Using a test-driven development framework, each Mob team tests, builds, tests, and delivers a finished product using a basic set of requirements. Discover what it’s like to be a Mob team member as you cycle through the various roles and phases in a fun, non-technical setting. You don’t even need previous Lego® experience. That’s what the Mob is there for!
