5 reasons why your next project should get its own warroom!
Our development team is working on multiple titles in parallel and their work includes daily business stuff like small features and bugfixes as well as projects. If a project is a little bigger we try to organize a fixed sub-team for it.
And lock them in a room!
Ok, we don’t lock them in but we separate them from the others into a dedicated room. This small project team is a mixed one with people from other teams joining forces so placing them in a shared room gives us the following benefits:
- Direct communication between project team members instead of running from room to room or talking over the phone.
- A project team commitment as people get a feeling of togetherness.
- Less distraction as each team members phone number will not be moved!
- More focus on the project’s goal as this will be the main concern for everybody in that room.
- A stable information hub for contributors that will all come to this room instead of the developers going to theirs.
Currently we have a project running in a warroom and so far it’s a pleasant experience for everybody involved.
