Use Your Title : Pattern 2

In this pattern, the author presents the issue of people getting moved into different roles due to their dedication to mastering their crafts and art.  usually when you become outstanding and put in time to better and help you team improve you begin to create a chain reaction of quality standards that either get matched by your peers who in turn become better programmers or you are put in a position to defend your processes and methods. ON the management level , this will serve as a sign that moves you to a leadership role or position in the company. It is at this point that the author wants us to understand that we do not need to conform to the pressure around us. As a software craftsman, you are to remain that and continually improve your craft without breaking into the distractions around you. we are not to allow ourselves to be controlled or changed by our title but we are to leave it at the outskirts of our consciousness. Once in such a position, do not be swayed by the positions descriptions and demands but instead use that as a gauge to assess your organization. If you were noticed due to you outstanding qualities, hard work and knowledge, it should serve as a sign for you to evaluate how well the organization seeks for growth and progress. On the other hand if you are not recognized although you are still exerting these qualities, that should also paint a picture of where the organization is headed. Everyone wants to be recognized when they do things that are deemed to be recognized so an organization that fails to recognize this often lose out on the talents of such a person. whiles companies that pay notice to things like that keep acquiring people of such traits. Another possible scenario that often results from this trend is the differentiation of both informal versus formal titles.Many times employees begin to grown into a positions of authority on teams, despite their formal title remaining the same. Growth into positions of authority booms with familiarity with the job, development of skills and an overall understanding of the specific companies processes and task. The more you understand, the more you can explain and the more you are familiar with a process, the better you understanding of it.
