SPaMCAST 263 - Transactional Analysis

Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 263

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 263 our essay on Transactional Analysis.  People are the heart of the interactions that drive every organization and team. Increasing the effectiveness of communication between people will directly translate to higher productivity. To improve communication you need to develop an understanding of psychology. Transactional analysis is one of the most useful psychological theories for IT professionals.
