This week our fearless leader, Robert Holler flew to Boston to record a 30-minute radio-style talk with The Standish Group as “CHAOS Tuesday” continues. This educational series, now in its 5th week, features Jim Johnson with co-host Steve Swartz and a special guest each week to dig deep into distinct areas of project management.

If you haven’t checked out this series yet, do it. It’s worth your time. A couple of curmudgeons cutting up and injecting humor into some pretty freakin’ cool thought leadership topics that can help you do your job better.

The spotlight this week was on Collaboration – in a successful application development project, agile team collaboration is HUGE. Users, sponsors and technical people must collaborate on a number of issues, such as requirements, quality, costs and schedules. In this session Robert covered:

  • Secrets to improve working better with other team members
  • Making team-to-team collaborating more effective
  • Getting people to collaborate in the first place
  • Improve relationships with diverse teams
  • Examples of effective collaboration
