Why Do Things Get Worse (With Teams) ?
John Cutler

I’d have to guess the biggest contributor this is first and foremost safety and trust.

The next one is Context. My guess is most people on teams like this lack a shared vision and understanding of the clear, measurable, success goals.

To steal unabashedly from Adam Nash: “What game are we playing and how do we keep score?” That responsibility clearly lies with Product but as we all know, sometimes Product struggles to get a good understanding of the game and the scorekeeping is often shifting and or different depending on the audience. Likely for the same dysfunctional root causes of the lack of trust.
