Great Teams are Grown, not Hired

Roy Osherove discusses three maturity stages of a team and adjusting leadership accordingly, along with techniques meant to bring craftsmanship and maturity in a software development team.

Roy argues that Great Teams must be grown - they cannot be hired in whole. Teams must learn how to become great at their work through practice and intense collaboration (just as military units become better by drilling and fighting together).

To grow Teams more effectively, leaders must tailor their leadership approach to the development stage or characteristics of the Team.
