Reading and Analysis 4

You should have read the chapter Communicating, Cooperating Teams, from Cockburn's Agile Software Development.  The chapter addresses the mechanics or "physics" of information and communication, and then explores the social dynamics of teams and teamwork.

In your analysis, I want you to consider the relationship between discipleship to Christ and the nature of team organization and operation.  In particular, I want you to address the author's claims about conflict and amicability and their possible benefits and liabilities.  In addressing these, you should argue for a particular stance toward conflict and amicability, whether your stance is in agreement or in contrast to the author's.

Refer to the general comments on these assignments for reminders on what is expected.  However, for this reading analysis, you are limited to a maximum of two (2) pages.
