Brian Marick had me on his Oddly Influenced podcast to talk about boundary objects.
Boundary objects, if you’re not familiar with them, are a tool for creating shared understanding. They’re a concrete model that people with different perspectives use to combine their views. I first heard about them from Brian many years ago, and now I use them as a regular part of my practice.
I love this interview because it’s so different than a typical Agile discussion. Boundary objects are simultaneously academic and obscure; and immensely pragmatic and useful. We had a fantastic discussion about how boundary objects work in practice. I highly recommend it.
