BAU:Lesson 4 - Frustrated... How many bosses do you have?

I have seen in some projects during my years through cubicle life that have more than one bosses. At the same level.

Usually a team performs best when there is a hierarchy of some kind with a flexible enough reporting structure. A rigid chain-of-command makes it pretty much stiffling for team members. Especially the ones who are part of an intellectual space such as IT or Media.

A friend of mine has highlighted the pitfalls of a team that has more than one boss very nicely in his blog "Multiple Boss = Exponential Problems"
