    Better. Faster. Cheaper. Many IT organizations are constantly seeking the "best" practices that will deliver those characteristics, and the fact that they continue to search indicates they haven’t found them yet.

    It could be they are looking in the wrong place. Most efforts around achieving better, faster, cheaper center around becoming ultra efficient.

    Effectiveness may just be the better target.

    Join Kent McDonald to explore the difference between efficiency and effectiveness and learn three simple, yet powerful, techniques that he has found can help teams be more effective. You’ll learn how to:

    • Build a shared understanding of the problem you are trying to solve
    • Establish clear guard rails for distributed decision making
    • Measure progress based on outcome, not output

    Along the way he’ll share stories about how he has used these techniques and help you figure out when these techniques may work in your situation.

    You may be able to get faster and cheaper with efficiency, but in order to get better outcomes, you need to be effective. Come to this session to learn how.
