Whatever form of communication that your team uses, it should be open and discoverable by all.


  • Inclusiveness
  • More ideas from more people
  • Visibility of work
  • Truely cross team collaborations


  • Noise
  • More ideas from more people - yes this is not always a good thing


There are legal and/or commercially sensitive reasons not to expose all converstaions to everyone. Private channels/conversations should be the exception rather than the rule.
