Summer parties aren't exactly a new thing, but this event was brand new for us!
Until 2019 we never had a summer party with and for our development teams at CM4all in Erfurt. On Wednesday, July 3rd, the two Erfurt teams and selected colleagues from Cologne met at the Alpensee to make contacts, to do serious teamwork and to spend a nice day together.
After a guided tour on stand up paddle boards across the lake, all participants sat down for a detailed group discussion focusing on current team dynamics and communicative measures in distributed teams. As an integral part of agile software development, the progress of the two Erfurt-based teams was analyzed, a deeper understanding of the framework conditions was achieved and potential for improvement was identified.
Cold drinks and delicious grill dishes were served throughout the event to help us strengthen ourselves for further activities around the lake. Exceeding all expectations, we were also blessed with a beautiful sunset to watch at the end of the warm and sunny day - a perfect event to repeat in the years to come!
