Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 89!

Show 89 is the editorial / essay component of the show.  The Software Process and Measurement Cast features Collaboration:  Business's Duct Tape Part 3.  THe summary of the whole essay is:

Collaboration is a nearly ubiquitous problem-solving technique used in today’s business environment.  As a tool it is not perfect; it can be slower than individual strokes of genius; at times it can deliver watered down solutions; and collaborative teams can lose their ability to think outside the box.  On the other hand, collaborative efforts can marshal many points of view to create solutions no individual stroke of genius would be able to deliver.  Given the power of this technique, it is important to have the knowledge of what it takes to actually make a collaborative effort work.  Synthesizing a group of individuals into a collaborative team requires a combination of ability, authority, commitment, trust and recognition.

Part One is included in SPaMCAST 85
