This event/activity qualifies for 1.00 Technical/Business & Strategic/Leadership PDU.

Abstract:

The government has for some time shown an interest in moving software development and potentially other management practices to Agile methods, including Scrum. However, the realities of implementing Scrum in some government environments can be fraught with difficulties and contradictions that make the process ineffective or untenable even when we "know" it should work. This discussion examines what common difficulties arise for the Scrum Master and development teams that limit the effectiveness of Scrum even when the government professes an interest and support. The discussion provides a very brief review of the Scrum method, and then discusses ways that government process limits its use. The presenter also provides insights into how some of the limitations can be mitigated to achieve a positive result for the client.

Background:

 

 

 

Commissioned in 1908, Baltimore Lighthouse is on the National Registry of Historic Places and remains an active aid to navigation, The Lighthouse is located 2 miles offshore at the confluence of the Chesapeake Bay and Magothy River.  The organization we founded purchased the lighthouse via government auction in 2006 and since that time we have been steadily renovating and updating it. This year, the Lighthouse was fortunate enough to be awarded a grant from the National Park Service and Maryland Historical Trust to correct extensive damage suffered during Hurricane Sandy.  Under this grant, the Lighthouse is the beneficiary of a new roof, new Jeld Wen windows and custom hand crafted doors presently being installed.

Greene Turtle by Harford Mall, Bel Air, MD 21014

Leadership Techniques, LLC. Presents -  Difficult Conversations

This event/activity qualifies for 1.00 Leadership PDU.

Abstract - 

During this presentation, we will offer a brief exploration of acceptable and effective ways to embrace the challenge of having difficult conversations. You’ll get a chance to practice as we break into groups to really challenge each other in various behavioral situations. Practice confronting without confrontation and disagreeing without being disagreeable.

Conflict avoidance can lead to a decline in overall team performance, therefore it is critically important to be able to effectively address issues as they arise. 

Join Lisa and Dave for a brief exploration of acceptable and effective ways to embrace the challenge of having difficult conversations.
