Isn't Always the Answer:
Director, Global Functional Learning
A wise person once said...when you only have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. As software professionals, especially those who seek to make improvements, we need to be careful that process (aka "the hammer") isn't the only tool in our improvement kit.
We'll discuss how to recognize when there are human elements at play and how to work them in a software engineering environment. Real world example will be used and a brief job-aid will be provided.
