Event Description

Jeremy Webb on AGILE and HAPPINESS

Selling Agile can be a difficult challenge, especially to those who are set in their ways. Our understanding of why Agile works strengthens our ability to deal with these difficult situations. One aspect rarely discussed when talking about Agile is how Agile creates happier employees and how happier employees result in better quality products and higher productivity.

Wouldn't it be great to be able to explain that relationship the next time somebody says they don't understand why we shouldn't have a deadline or why they can't interrupt the sprint?

Join an interactive discussion where we will blend science and real life experiences to uncover the relationship between Agile, Happiness and Productivity. With any luck, we might just have some fun along the way!

Jeremy Webb's decade in software has included a number of different roles in product and organizational development, and he launched top performing products in emerging and existing markets, and was a key contributor in a transformation effort that led to selling a company for a billion dollars.

During this, Jeremy noticed trends in what makes certain teams and organizations more effective than others and began researching and building systems to replicate these high performance environments.

In 2013, Jeremy co-founded Organizational Engineering with the intent of Changing the Way the World Works and Making the World a Better Place Though Better Business . The organization focuses on applying human behavioral principles that increase productivity and product quality though making work more fulfilling for employees.
Organizational Engineering provides consultation services, workshops and training programs that help organizations make lasting transformations.

This is a continuation of our Oct 28th topic about Positive Attitudes from Richard Kasperowski and Julia Ivashina, signatories of the Manifesto for Greatness and co-founders of the Greatness Guild ( going from Good to Great)
