Even with the best intentions, collaboration at work can go horribly wrong. We’ve all experienced working in teams where there’s a process that no one gets, communication goes awry and decisions somehow always feel wrong. What’s going on?

In this talk I'll share recent scientific findings about how people think and make decisions. Learn ways we’ve changed how we work at Jama Software, and moves you can use next time you find yourself working with other people!
