The Violence in CommunicationJeremiah Landi

Needs are the basic building blocks of life. All humans need relatively the same things to continue existing and remaining happy. If this is true statement then how is it so difficult to explain ours needs to another individual? We are both humans and both presumably speak the same language. What is really holding us back?
I will be exploring my journey through Nonviolent Communication and the lessons I have learned through this. I will be talking down examples from real life that are sadly too common in all of our lives. Hopefully this will spur thinking and communication building in all of our lives that will create ideas that we can take back to our team to use on a daily basis.
Extending Agile Beyond Software Development
Is Agile purely a software development tool? Of course not! The principles of Agile can applied just about anywhere. So why hasn't all of your IT organization adopted Agile practices?
The truth is, once your software project is done and you're on to the next one, IT Operations takes over. Systems administration, networking, desktop support, and data management must all work in concert to support your application. Are you in alignment with the entire value chain?
This talk will cover a number of management philosophies, including Agile, Lean, ITSM, and Gamification, and discuss how they can be applied outside of software development to bring greater alignment and effeciency to the enterprise IT department. We'll show you real life examples of where Agile practices have been successfully adopted outside of software development, the challenges we faced in our own transformation, and how we overcame them.
