Forming and Leading a Team of Experts at EL-SIG Oct 21

Written by Sean Murphy. Posted in Events

I have been invited to speak at the SDForum Engineering Leadership SIG next Thursday, October 21st. I will suggest methods for “Forming and Leading a Team of Experts”

How can teams become more effective at making decisions quickly and reaching a working consensus? How can we as managers foster effective collaboration on teams made up of several experts. Join us as we explore team decision making, the challenges in blending human expertise, and the use of software tools to maintain a shared situational awareness and improve the timeliness and quality of decisions. This talk explores problems that engineering teams and startups wrestle with as they move from hunches to working technology to product to repeatable, scalable processes. This talk will cover how groups make decisions and how to systemically approach the management of exploration and verification cycles in product and customer development situations. Whether you are a talented engineer, an engineering manager, or an engineering executive you will learn some practical tips for building and leading teams of experts.

Where: 6:30 to 9:00pm Thursday October 21st

Where: SAP – Southern Cross Room, 3410 Hillview Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304

Cost: $15 at the door for non-SDForum members; No charge for SDForum members.
