Most of the time you’ll work in teams, but sometimes teammates don’t understand each other. Working on a piece of software becomes a drag. So why does this happen? Can you prevent this from happening?

During this talk we’ll introduce The Attitude Model. This model helps us to improve teamwork. It explains and predicts how teams argue, cooperate and excel. It helps us to understand what individuals need from their team and what they bring to the table. The Attitude Model allows us to move from storming to performing.

With The Attitude Model by your side you and your team will have fewer conflicts, work together more smoothly and have better meetings. You will have tools to divide your software design approach. So come join me in my journey on how I became the world champion with my team (and clients).


I’m Joop Lammerts, and I have done web development since the beginning of 2.0. After working in solitude for ages I now found myself surrounded by enthusiastic colleagues.

I’m a typical “home schooled” developer. But it is impossible to work on complex domain models on your own. So I looked for place where I can learn, but still commit to my “no nonsense – it works doesn’t it” approach. I now work with business owners and domain experts on a day to day basis to create happiness among their clients.

In a previous live I’ve been a youth social worker. So i have a great knowledge and experience in the field about group dynamics and working together as a team. I would like to share all my lessons learned with you! So hopefully I will see you at one of my talks.
