Avoid Working from Home drama May 2020 | View Online

Working from Home - Romance or Drama?

Wow. Hasn't this been the largest working from home experiment? Developers working remotely or from home, was quite common in our industry even before the Covid-19 lock down. At SSW, I’ve always been reluctant to do more than minimal work from home, for a few reasons;

  1. I believe co-located Scrum Teams are better
  2. It’s a lot harder to give your clients consistency and continuity: Rule: Do you understand the value of consistency?
  3. A lot of energy into improving people's presentation skills, and that is much easier to do in person
  4. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into creating a cool stimulating working environment, and a culture that encourages cumulative brain power

Keep reading to see the rules you can follow to create a great working from home experience.
