Knowledge silos lead to project roadblocks and team frustrations.
Structuring engineering orgs based on function can be a practical solution, especially in large tech teams. But in many cases, it creates silos that exacerbate skill gaps that can lead to roadblocks, friction between teams, and a culture of dependency.
In this panel, engineering leaders discuss the methods they’ve used to share knowledge and collaborate across their engineering teams. They cover how you can identify silos, recognize when they are a problem, and take practical steps to break down barriers between teams.
- Identify when restrictive silos appear in your engineering teams
- Learn how to leverage engineering specializations without compromising team performance
- Improve problem-solving and team cooperation
- Build a cross-functional and autonomous engineering culture
