Working on a large team can be crazy. "Why are we wasting all of our time in meetings?" "Who wants to respond to this email from the client?" "Will bringing this new person onboard slow us down so we miss our deadline?" "Whose turn is it to make sure the build goes out to the client this week?" "Why are we doing the same things over and over and not getting any better?"
At Detroit Labs, one of our largest project teams consists of 20 people - a designer, QA, Android and iOS developers, and a delivery lead - yet we all manage to work as a cohesive group and have fun doing it. We’ll talk about how we manage to keep small team performance and agility while gaining advantages of scale. From hiring to onboarding, keeping work flowing, QAed, and delivered, even how we choose our music, we’ll share our experiences about what keeps the Megateam going strong.
