Ensemble Working - Definition

Ensemble working - when a whole team works together on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, on the same computer.

You call it Ensemble Programming when you’re working on a programming task, and Ensemble Testing when it’s a testing task.

The term Ensemble Programming is a synonym for Mob Programming: it’s the same thing. In Samman coaching, we prefer to use the word “Ensemble” because it sounds more friendly.
