Johanna Rothman is a management consultant for software managers and leaders. She is also the author of many books, most recently “Agile and Lean Program Management: Scaling Collaboration Across the Organization”. She started working with geographically distributed teams in 1988. The breadth of communication tools was very limited in that time, so resolving conflicts had to be done mainly through coming to an understanding through conversations and trying to see each other points of view.

This can end up being a key differentiator for businesses too. People can work on the things they love, and businesses can hire people who love what they do versus people who are just doing their jobs. For more stories, visit www.CollaborationSuperpowers.com
