Signs of poor communication

less than 1 minute read

Walking in an office and just looking around for 10 minutes is enough to have a feeling of the level of communication in that environment.

When:

  • co-located people communicate mainly via IMs, mails, or comments on online collaborative tools instead of face-to-face conversation
  • a heavyweight tool is the preferred way for driving the work flow instead of using it only for backup and tracking
  • on the whiteboard you can read the outcomes of the retrospective of 7 months before

There’s definitively something wrong.

What about your team? How many of the above bullet points are you ticking off?
