How can we overcome silos in our organization?
Large organizations commonly consist of silos that present challenging communication and coordination “puzzles.” The good news is that stakeholders often have the same goal – to make their customers successful.
Start by finding common ground and uncovering the win-win efforts across multiple silos. Invite stakeholders to your Program Increment (PI) Planning events to show them what your teams are trying to accomplish for the customer.
Concurrently, bubble up your dependencies and risks to your Product Manager, Solution Manager, or Portfolio leaders. Then enable peer-to-peer discussions between silos in targeted meetups and open the lines of communication. These steps will reward your customers with more value, delivered more quickly.
