  • I spent years developing software
  • Most difficult problems are communication issues
  • Visual Studio is a rich environment for development, what you need are tools that provide a rich communication environment
  • Mike Cohn taught a class at a hotel….
  • Catering too!
  • Panic ensues….
  • Miscommunication occurs when you use tools that aren’t up to the task—like email. Which is like using notepad to develop software.
  • Humans use lots of tools—body language, inflection, expression….
  • Words can be at odds with body language…. And when they are, we believe the body language.
  • Humans believe body language…..
  • We need rich communication tools like voice, video….
  • In person being the richest of all….
  • You can add tools that enhance interpersonal communication: postits, sharpies….
  • White boards, paper prototyping, charts
  • Hand-drawn charts…..
  • Face to face communication is the richest team environment of all…
  • So put down your mouse, and pick up your sharpie!
