I work with one other person on a project. We are both new and inexperienced, and we feel our output will be more efficient by working together.
By working collaboratively, I feel we spend too much time in one area of the project, as one of us may be slower at understanding this new component/technology.
Is there a way to increase our output capacity while allowing both of us to learn the knowledge and skills necessary to understand each piece of the project?
As we use different approaches in studying a topic, we feel each one's stuck on a thing as a diversion to another. There are no missed deadlines, I just find it frustrating. I am an embedded software engineer.
