Pair Programming
"All code to be sent into production is created by two people working together at a single computer. Pair programming increases software quality without impacting time to deliver. It is counter intuitive, but 2 people working at a single computer will add as much functionality as two working separately except that it will be much higher in quality. With increased quality comes big savings later in the project"
"Don't expect people to be good at it from the start. It helps if you have someone on your team with experience to show everyone what it should feel like."
