Software development is a polarized industry - from the division between product and technology to the division of team roles between developers and testers. We end up reinforcing silos rather than fixing systemic problems, and assigning blame rather than making a better product. Agile was supposed to fix this; it hasn’t. In this session, Natalie explores how this dysfunctionality across companies trickles down to cross-functionality hindrances at the team level. She examines our personal identities as knowledge workers and shows that if we can't see the whole (problem, system, customer journey), it expands the gap between us and our users leading to all types of problems in product development and implementation. Come see how you can help your organization and team become cross-functional beyond just striving for "T-shaped".
