Five people at one computer?! How can that possibly be productive?

While this seems like a reasonable question, it’s not easily answered – until we begin to understand the power of flow.

Mob Programming grew from the quest of one team to learn how to work well together. Once we started We almost immediately noticed that working this way provided better results in a variety of ways:
– We were getting more, and more important things done
– The quality of our work was increasing dramatically
– Our knowledge, skills, and capabilities were improving rapidly
– And all while we were having a lot of fun!

While we noticed these benefits and more, and it was clear this was in a large part due to working well together throughout the day – we didn’t have an understanding of why this was working so wonderfully for us.

A hint came early on when we recognized we were achieving a one-piece flow – but we didn’t realize the importance of this until we started exploring the meaning and power of “flow”.

In this presentation we’ll share the results of that exploration, and see if we can get a better understanding of Mob Programming and the power of flow.
