Workshop: The three amigos (coaching)

Jul 5, 2022


The “Three Amigos” (or The Story Kick Off huddles or the Triad) allow us to examine a work increment before, during and after development from several perspectives:

  • Business: What problem are we trying to solve?
  • Development: How could we build a solution to solve this problem?
  • Testing: What could happen?

This balances the collaborations of people with different perspectives.


  • Invite people with these different perspectives (not necessarily three).
  • Define what needs to be done.
  • Agree on how they know when it is done correctly.
  • Formulate the shared understanding as examples of work increments.
  • Review the product increments that have been implemented to ensure that it is correct from these different perspectives.

This workshop helps identify misunderstandings and confusion early on.
