Coaching you to coach your team
I regularly run deliberate practice sessions where I ask people to pair up and design a software solution for a given problem before communicating it using pictures. This allows people to experience collaborative software design and to hone their communication skills, as well as being a great way to illustrate what "just enough" up front design is all about.
The same exercise undertaken with your own team can be used contextualise what "just enough" means to you, in terms of both the software design process and communicating it through a collection of lightweight yet effective architecture sketches. But how do you actually do that? This session is about coaching you to coach your team.
