How to Know When the Team is Broken

How to Know When the Team is Broken
  • Broken teams often don’t want to talk to each other.
  • However, broken teams often don’t want to be split up.
  • Broken teams often work harder than high performing teams but with fewer results.
  • Broken teams are unhappy at their work and sometimes also in their personal lives. The line between work and life can blur.
  • Broken teams can polarise the rest of your engineering organisation around their opinions. This can be highly dangerous.
