Workshop—Feature Team Adoption map
One of the key ideas in LeSS that is different from most other approaches is shared code ownership across many teams. We use this XP practice and bring it to the next level - across many teams instead of just within a team. Also, we use continuous integration practice from XP and bring it to the next level: across many teams. In this workshop, we will take real situations from participants and in groups step-by-step do "Feature Team Adoption map", and go through big part of the process of creating feature teams. We will explore how teams are formed that share code ownership, and how sharing starts and grows. What does it mean in reality to share ownership, what is the effect on quality, and other related questions. Which technical practices are needed and how they work.
