Role Play Your Own Worst Enemy
Who was there
Ikenna, Liz, Ian, Benjamin, David, Nader and Squirrel.
What we did
The group shouted out a few difficult conversations they'd been part of. Then a pair of volunteers acted out that conversation. The rest of us watched, and afterwards discussed our reactions.
Here are the opening line for the conversations:
I don't want to Pair Program!
The tests must inject these thousand objects into the system!
Why do we have to have so much documentation?
I was pleased by the session, with fascinating suggestions and challenges coming from everyone there. Personally, I had to face up to a willingness to "sideline" someone in order to move the project along.
