Build a Workplace People Love - Just add Joy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Joy in the context of business sounds ridiculous, and would be except for one important glaring fact: it produces measurable, repeatable, and sustainable results. Learn why from the founder, CEO, and Cheif Storyteller and author Richard Sheridan.

Within an industry known for missed deadlines, poor quality, "death march" processes and user experiences that requireDummies books to explain, this talk will deliver the hope of a better way. Attendees who attend agile and scrum conferences are searching for tangible examples from which to sample and learn. This talk will deliver inspiration and practical takeaways.

Agile methodologies practiced The Menlo Way™ since 2001 are both joyful and disciplined. In this session, Sheridan will share from him personal experiences about the effects of physical space on team energy and engagement, the benefit of simple paper-based project management tools to foster better sponsor relationships, the power of systematic pairing in creating a learning organization that render towers of knowledge and Brooks' Law quaint challenges of the past.

Sheridan will discuss the cultural norms that remove fear and encourage experimentation; you'll hear about the elimination of meetings and the rituals and ceremonies that replace them. Learning Objectives: 1) Design a culture with the right team and leadership in a learning environment; 2) create client involvement; 3) define your environment by joy in an open and collaborative culture and 4) create delightful user experiences.
