That’s not what I asked for!

The power of words, misunderstood – Professional dialects and product failure

What we have here is a failure to communicate! Spoken and written language is the primary way through which we communicate (humans do have many other modes of communication such as body language and behaviors but we will save that for a session at a later date).  So if the entire team speaks the same language, how is it there is so much misunderstanding?  How can the same word or phrase hold such different meanings for different people?  What is the impact when a team operates under a false belief of understanding?  The consequences can range from inconvenient slipped launch dates to utter product disasters.  These pitfalls can be avoided by taking steps to clarify team terminology and meaning.  Join us in this collaborative workshop as we help you create a Rosetta Stone for deciphering your team language.
