What Does Go Bro Suggest for Software?

January 26, 2022

Traditionally IT workers and sports fans are traditionally represented by the stereotypical portrayals of nerds and jocks. The jocks are very buff, popular individuals while nerd are smart, socially awkward people. Since the advancement of computer science, the Internet, and videogames, the stereotypes have eroded. ReadWrite explains how the jock and nerd chasm is smaller in, “Why Software Product Development Is The Ultimate Team Sport.”

Teamwork is essential to a successful IT department and/or company. It is extremely important for software product development. Contrary to popular conceptions, programmers and their teams do not isolate themselves. Instead Programmers are part of a dynamic team effort comparable to how professional sports teams are managed.

Software product development teams should be carefully built and be allowed to discover their own work rapport:

“To a large extent, these teams should be able to work free of bureaucracy and politics, focusing entirely on the product at hand. To do that, the other stakeholders need to collaborate to ensure teams have the guidance, resources, and time they need to work with a high degree of independence.

Just as important as assembling the constituent parts and letting them operate autonomously is finding the right fit between them. Teams obviously need to have the right combination of skills to turn the software product development process into a functional, finished product. But they also need the right mix of personalities, clear roles for everyone involved, a cohesive leadership structure, and effective communication channels.”

Similar to sports teams, software development groups need to adapt to uncut, overcome persistent obstacles, create meaningful innovation, overcoming persistent obstacles, being able to repeat success. These are all situations that not only sports and software teams handle, but also all teams in all industries.
