What the Bones Brigade taught me about building awesome teams

A session at UX Cambridge 2015

Thursday 10th September, 2015

3:30pm to 4:30pm (GMT)

You may not have heard of the Bones Brigade. I hadn't - 'til I stumbled across it on Netflix! You've probably heard of Tony Hawk, though, one of the first members of the Bones Brigade.

The Bones Brigade movie is about the 1980s skateboard team formed of unknown amateur skaters from radically different backgrounds. They were each specialists in a their own discipline, led and mentored by an expert not much older than them. It transfixed me and got me thinking about teams in the software world.

I'm not, nor have I ever been, a skateboarder!

But I'd like to share with you what I think we can learn about cross functional teams, mentoring, healthy competition in teams and who really "runs" a team.
