SPaMCAST 554 features our essay on the misuse of the word 'collaboration'. Collaboration is a hallmark of agile techniques, but people confuse collaboration with many other forms of interactions. When that happens everyone gets confused and disheartened. In order to stop the cycle, we identify four attributes to help recognize collaboration.
We'll also hear from Gene Hughson who brings his Form Follows Function Column to the podcast. In the second part of a three-part series on architects, Gene discusses the role of the solutions architect. Part One can be found on SPaMCAST 543 - Value Chain, Solution Architects, Essays and Discussions Web Player and Show Notes: http://bit.ly/2L3tLku

Today we dive into the concept of anchors and the impact of anchor bias. This is one of my favorite topics for understanding behaviors in negotiations. Negotiations are all around us whether you are discussing salary, buying a car, or wrestling with a request for an impossible due date.

SPaMCAST 555 will complete our latest set of essays on collaboration. In this essay, we apply the four attribute model we introduced this week. Having a model is great and it is even better if it can be applied in the real world!
We will also have a visit from the Software Sensei, Kim Pries.
