I love developing software. Its a passion. I engage without much encouragement or convincing, and as such, often pursue my vocation on my own. I’ve previously written about these factors.

Nowadays my work has taken me to a situation where software development simply has to be a team sport.

These days I’m working on projects that are scheduled to be completed in less time than a single individual has available. The only solution is to have multiple people, a team, working on the projects.

Unfortunately, our team does not have enough team members yet, and not surprisingly, our team is getting crabby and defensive.

Dear lazyweb, what advice might you offer?
