Dependencies plague most software and IT groups, but they are simply situations in which the needs of the work don't match your team structure (silos). How can you recognize when your teams have become silos, when your work is planned at the expense of others, and when "protecting the team" guarantees poor execution.
Jim will talk about how he works with teams to quickly show these bottlenecks and dependencies for what they are: a simple failure to collaborate as the work requires. Then he will discuss how teams have truly self-organized to avoid dependencies and eliminate bottlenecks altogether.
He will do this in his usual insightful, yet funny, way. Hopefully.
