Successful software involves several different perspectives and sources of expertise. Agile Software Development emphasizes collaboration, but our studies show many opportunities are missed, and many beneficial practices are not recognized. In this talk, I will review some of our research findings, and suggest how better understanding of human behaviour can lead to collaboration, and better software.
