Since august, I have had a software programmer in my charge and I became the project leader of my area.
She went well with learning things about our area, configuring some tasks, but ever since I started to ask her more complex things (to be specific, complex in the sense, understand sql functions and how the back end of a application works) is when my problems got started
First of all, I think she underestimates the complexity of the tasks, then I believe she became secure and stretches her schedule doing the bare minimum until I ask her how she goes; for example she does not implement her changes in the development environment, she just goes "I'm just testing things here in my sql session" like some query's on the fly without testing the project as a whole (I assured her that she can do and test whatever she wants in development environment)
Wednesdays are the days that new releases are made, so I told her days ago to check with time her development with the entire project, not just use the Monday and Tuesday to adjust things. Today. Friday she implemented her changes and of course, in the development environment everything crashed
This is not the first time she has done this. My specific question is, with that personality should I implement a sort of specific scrum for her? We use waterfall because our projects are small; I'm thinking about sitting with her 15 minutes a day to ask her about her progress.
This is not what we're used to doing, we normally just set deadlines and set a Gantt diagram, I'm not saying every other developer is perfect but her case is very isolated. She only had that task and previously I was assured that she understood how the project works and I tried to respond to her questions as clearly as possible.
