About the session

I’ve noticed an increasingly worrying trend in the industry of specialisation at the expense of collaboration, shared responsibility and valuable outcomes. There might be many reasons for this, from organisational structures, changing workforces or uncertainty in the world. This trend is creating silos, across departments, between roles, and even in teams.

These silos mean that all the value that comes from a multidisciplinary team is lost, people get pigeonholed, and we lose focus on creating valuable outcomes for our users.

In this talk, I will explore this trend, some of the reasons we might be seeing it, and some approaches and techniques to break those silos down to work together better.

Themes: teams, silos, collaboration
