Pairing is effective for creating shared understanding, achieving great outcomes, learning new things, creating happy pairs and teams. Practice different styles to boost your skills to the next level!

Are you tired of pushing tasks back and forth between business, user experience, development, testing and operations? Have you always wanted to dive deeper into a certain area of expertise, yet are not sure where and how to start? Have you discovered the benefits of pairing for yourself and are eager to hone these skills and become a better pairing partner? Pairing up with another person to work on the same task at the same time provides many advantages like sharing implicit knowledge, effective problem solving, generating more ideas faster, overcoming obstacles and keeping ourselves focused to learn and get things done with better outcomes. This collaborative approach can help you achieve a lot in a short time, yet for that to happen we need to learn how to do it well. Different styles lead to different collaboration dynamics. Deliberately practicing these different styles will take our pairing skills to a new level - and is a fun way of learning together. Join us in this hands-on workshop where you can safely experiment with different pairing styles on a wide variety of topics of your choice and learn what works best for you to tackle your current and future challenges!
