Our Next CHAOS Tuesday:
September 23: CHAOS Tuesday #61: is titled “Toxic Person”. A toxic person can demoralize other team members. The notion of toxic comes from the idea of poisoning the well so others cannot drink from it. In this program, Evan Sorensen helps us understand how to deal with a toxic person. Evan is the founder and director of the New England Institute for Marriage and Family Therapy. In addition to Evan, Lee Cunningham will explain how agile management tools fit into the wider environment of the application life cycle.
