Attributes of a great development team member

Category:General PostTag: :

My boss’s boss recently asked me, “If an Agile leader were to outline the top characteristic of their best developers, what are they? “

The response was relatively quick, and rather “off the cuff”. After re-reading it, I like my answer!

  1. Seeks to help others with any aspect of product development, regardless of her individual specialty
  2. Independently pursues continuous learning and shares new knowledge with the team
  3. Encourages and enacts technical practices to improve code and product quality
  4. Collaboratively and respectfully engages during all Scrum events
  5. Pro-actively seeks and provides feedback on code and the product being created
  6. Encourages, coaches, and embodies team-level agility
  7. Respectfully collaborates with other teams to ensure valuable features are DONE within each Sprint
  8. Embraces and actively supports organizational-level agility
  9. Enacts and coaches product instrumentation enabling Build > Measure > Learn
