DevOps ice-breaker ball game increase Trust & Relationship

This ice-breaker simulation increases trust and relationship.

Trust – is a big aspect, you can’t be successful if you can’t trust other parts of an organization. When we’re surrounded by people who believe what we believe, something remarkable happens… trust emerges.

  • Team members need to build Trust with IT team themselves and some of the other parts of the business.
  • The trust will make the relationship stronger across an organization and increases the quality of work.

Relationship – Product delivery isn’t just one team does a nice job. This is development, product management, testing, Database, UI, PM\BA, all working together when there’s something bad and something great. To be a high-performance organization, the relationship among these teams need to be strengthened.
