I don’t like have meetings for the sake meetings.
But I do like getting people in a room to discuss a problem, always ensuring it’s the right people. If it’s two developers working in the same area across one problem, let’s have a quick fifteen to talk about it.
I like this, because inevitably, once we get into it, the magic starts and they begin to feed off of each other. Their ideas, their designs, their problems, their counter-proposed solutions, it’s what makes being on a team so great in the first place.
Don’t silo them when looking at problems, bring them into it together, it will strengthen the end result each and every time.
