Improvising requires so much focus on the now that one immediately experiences when something is (not) working. There is no room to hide behind fancy mechanisms. Improvising is about having an eye for the shared reality with the other person and recognizing ownership of it.
In some teams there is no room for growth, because mistakes and failure are desperately avoided.
