The Sans Institute isn’t a place I would look for entertaining reading.  I have to admit to tracking the site as my job requires that I have a handle on best practice for development including code security considerations and issues of PCI. But a new paper in the Institute’s reading room certainly got my attention – "Beer – The Key Ingredient to Team Development". As much as my team and I’m sure many others would love to use this as an excuse to head for the pub everyday on the company’s tab; it is actually an article about team development and the different stages a team goes through (Forming, Storming, Performing etc).

I have to admit I’ve not read the paper any further than to discern its key theme, but I’ll try to blog about it once I’ve read and digested it.
