Mobservations – The Power of Observation in a Mob


“Amazing things happen when we are open to accepting help from others, and willing to help each other.” Woody Zuill, the initiator of mob programming, nails it here.

Never heard of mob programming so far? It’s basically this: “All the brilliant people, working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer.“ Though this might sound strange to some, it’s a wonderful approach to create learning situations and get the best out of everybody. While more and more teams try out mob programming, observation is a skill that can be easily overlooked. However, it can help you with many things: developing your product to be truly valuable, testing your application, improving how your team collaborates, or even your own behavior.

Are you aware of what’s going on? Let’s discover together in this interactive workshop on how a mob can help to gather observations and make better decisions based on them.

Key takeaways

  • Learn the basics of the mob approach and practice them hands-on
  • Sharpen your senses and level up your observation skills
  • Reflect on what actually happened to make informed decisions on how to improve things
