How to Make Real Collaboration Possible (Gil Broza)

Collaboration is generally considered a net positive, and it’s supposed to be a key principle and strength of Agile. Yet, most Agile teams – even those that seem to work well together – don’t collaborate nearly enough, and thus don’t reach their full potential. It takes intention and effort to make real collaboration possible, let alone appealing and practical! (all the more so now that everyone’s working from home).

In this interactive talk, the author of “The Human Side of Agile” explains the not-so-short list of not-so-simple factors at play, and shares a process you can use for determining which actions would establish or increase collaboration in your team.
