Previously, I wrote about muscling through when solving the local development on-boarding is a problem.
Identifying the problem and understanding why the problem
What to do from here?
- Let current solution continue.
- Stop team and fix it.
- Slowly fix the problem.
Which one of these is appropriate? It depends.
One of the most important aspect in choosing a solution is that, whichever one you choose, there will also be a culture shift.
Because the culture (or lack of culture) is a key reason why the problem crept in the first place.
The worst thing that can happen is you choose a solution, but over time, the problem happens again because the team’s culture does not support it.
As a leader, choose a solution path that results in the new culture you want the team to exhibit.
