Class versus form

If you are sports fan, then you probably heard of the phrase, class is permanent, form is temporary. If you want a digital team to deliver a fast, proficient, and accurate code, then you need to hire the best people and just as in sports, finding these talented individuals is expensive and difficult. If you are in a digital team with these souls, then congratulations! You are a part of the elite and already working in an environment that delivers at pace. Most of us are not so lucky, especially if you are working in the provinces outside the megacities. Elite development, design, and architecture are an unaffordable luxury.

So, do ensure that a digital team works, especially if you are just a developer, keep the following things in mind:

  • Recognize that digital teams are people and they have ups and downs from families, friends, and life in general.

  • Don't be a workaholic. Give your brain and your team a rest. Take your annual holiday allocation.

  • The best creative, design, and architectural ideas sometimes come from the left field: the gym shower, walking the dog, and an afternoon nap.

  • Technical leaders, managers, and stakeholders, heads up! Organize the projects to include slack time. Don't bunch the tasks and project one after another.

  • Team members at the bottom of the corporate hierarchy, heads up! Don't be a shrinking violet. If the projects are difficult and challenging, then communicate! Let the other people in the team know the issues and push back to the senior management at the earliest opportunity.

  • Don't multitask. It doesn't work. Concentrate on one thing at a time.

  • Allow individuals to rise to future role models in order to foster growth: organic technical leadership.

  • Allow you and your team a chance to learn, go to conferences, meet other industry folk, and take extra training.

Remember if you want to get good at playing rock as a lead guitarist, then you need to practice, practice, and practice. It is the same for the high achievers who build some of the best software applications on the planet.
