In this Lightning Cast, we discuss “us vs. them” mentality between business and technology and how to break down those silos and realize that we are the business.


A Lightning Cast is a shorter form episode modeled after lightning talks.  You’ll get valuable content in 8 minutes or less.

We often have silos in our organizations.  The biggest silos I hear about in almost every organization is between business people and technology people. 

We use terms such as “the business” and “them”.  Our language and mindset builds and reinforces silos instead of breaking them down.

Aren’t we all working for the same organization?  Aren’t we all working towards the some goals?  “They” aren’t the business, we’re the business.


Listen to the full episode to understand why we have an us versus them mentality between business and technology, how to avoid local optimization, and discover that we’re all “the business”.
