“As long as the hole in the boat is on their side, we’re fine” – or so goes the cartoon. But that’s a short-sightedness that can have serious consequences to the team. Mattia shares a similar story that so clearly illustrates the importance of having a collaboration culture in our teams. Most importantly, Mattia shares his approach to creating a collaborative way of working in a team that was struggling to collaborate.
In this episode we refer to the “slack time” policy that can help team focus on collaboration. You can find an example of a team using “slack time” here, and Mattia’s own explicit policy for how to handle slack time.
