One thing I’ve learned in my 20+ years as a product leader and as a recreational hockey player is the importance of effective teamwork and handoffs. I’ve seen the entire software development process transform over the last 20 years by solving handoff problems (e.g. agile teams working closely together vs. product throwing requirements over the wall). I’ve also experienced the best results in hockey when playing on a line with just “okay” players because we played really well together.
