Over the weekend I read an article about craftsmanship written by Richard Sennett. He makes the point that true craftsmanship is about collaboration not competition and that modern teaching methods do not recognise this. In the days of guilds of master craftsman apprentices would spend years learning by osmosis. Perhaps the learning we experience in a Scrum is not that different to the way stone masons learnt their trade hundreds of years ago. After all many of the best developers do not have computer science degrees and learn through the huge swathes of information available on the Internet and from their peers. Could agile with its focus on high quality and design be turning developers into modern day craftsman?
