GOTO Amsterdam 2018


Topic Description

Track Host: Katherine Kirk

“No matter how it looks at first, it's always a people problem.” - Gerald Weinberg

And no matter how technical your job is, you still have to interact with other humans. Even after our Agile or Lean implementation or radical DevOps initiative is running, we have to be able to work effectively with people from different disciplines and backgrounds if we are to create truly high-performing teams.

We’re witnessing a shift from hierarchical ‘command and control’ management systems to flatter systems with more individual autonomy and yet despite their benefits, these systems present new and unique challenges.

Speakers in The Human Factor track will show you new ideas and techniques about how technology businesses can deal with people. This is new, innovative stuff - from people working on the ground with real people in the real world.
