5 Patterns of Effective Communication in Agile Teams
The way we communicate is the single most important skillset employers look for when hiring. It has a significant impact on cost, productivity, team morale, and employee retention in the workplace. A study conducted by The Economist shows that problems in communication often delay project completion, lead to low morale and missed goals, and can result in a loss of sales. With that in mind, it becomes all the more important to identify these gaps in communication when working with agile teams that have different roles, such as project managers, developers, testers, business analysts, scrum masters, and architects. Each role has different responsibilities, and these individuals develop their own mental models and patterns of communication.
In this session, I will discuss the 5 patterns of effective communication that will help any team improve productivity, team morale and job satisfaction. I will share my real life experiences on how I have helped teams collaborate better and work as one single unit using these approaches. Attending my talk, will help anyone identify anti patterns in communication and take corrective measures quickly.
