Best Practices: Building High-Performance Application Development Teams

Lead Business Technology Growth Through Empowered App Dev Teams

    Why Read This Report

    As businesses look forward to the end of another recession, IT leaders have shifted their priorities toward growth, but many development shops struggle to support it. "Partner Player" development shops are in the best position to enable business growth, because they're flexible and staffed with creative software development professionals assembled in high-performance development teams. Managers looking to become Partner Player development shops should adjust their recruiting practices to attract creative development professionals. They should also adjust their culture to keep high performers happy and create an environment where employees can develop into those desirable high performers. Finally, they should manage high-performance teams with a streamlined set of Lean Software development processes that allow them to maximize the time they spend "in flow," doing the mission-critical tasks you pay them to do.
