Podcast on Three Amigos

The nice folks at Telerik (a Progress company) were kind enough to host me for a discussion on how using the Three Amigos can dramatically improve your teams’ effectiveness. Ed Charbeneau saw my blog post “All In With The Three Amigos” and thought it would make a good conversation.

You can find the show at Telerik’s Developer Network blog.

Listen for yourself and let me know what you think!

Hey Jim, I think Bolton just conned you for propaganda purposes on Twitter.

Hey Jim, that was a good podcast! Great memories that made me chuckle a few times.

I'm also a big believer in 3 Amigos. I've run into scenarios a few times where the manager saw the value in 3 Amigo's after a while but said "hey that's great but why can't we have the 3 Amigos in the previous sprint and know that we underestimated the story before the sprint started and we had the 3 Amigos". In my view you usually haven't figured out who will work on a user story before the sprint starts. The big requirements related questions should already have been asked during backlog grooming. It's difficult to devote enough time to dig into the code / tests until you know who will work on the story and really start thinking how you will implement this / how you will test this.

I know some people favor 3 amigos even before the sprint planning, what's your take on when a 3 amigo's conversation is the most effective?
