Boundary Objects Discussion on the Oddly Influenced Podcast

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.
