Last week I was part of a 4-day long training organized by my company on User and System Requirements conducted by Learning Tree. It was a very interactive team-based exercise and we were given a scenario and had to work together to achieve the target.
Other than the technical knowledge I gained; the best part for me was getting a better understanding of team dynamics. Everyone has different ideas and thinks they are right. The trick is how to ensure that you keep on moving ahead and everyone feels good. I also had the opportunity to present one aspect of our work to the whole class and the instructor, and that served as a confidence booster.
Next week my manager has lined me up for another one of their trainings: Object-Oriented Design and Analysis Using UML and I’m really looking forward to it.
