A Relaxed Look at Getting Engineers up to Speed in a High Performance Organization
These are my learnings, and you can bet this is a work in progress. Here goes!
Before I jump into methods, let’s talk outcomes.
The worst outcome would be a group of overwhelmed programmers, fully dependent on others for instruction. They wouldn’t know their role in their team or their department, and they wouldn’t be able to connect their day-to-day work with the success of the company. Worse yet, they could start on the path of failure, driven by ego and defensive mindsets.
The best outcome would be a set of individuals with a sense of purpose, the tools they need to be autonomous, and with a learning mindset. They will have experienced success, and understand their role in the success of those around them. They have the will and skill to get shit done!
