Pssst...your team holds the keys to your project success
The individuals on teams impact team dynamics; team dynamics impact the
day-to-day life of a project. A project succeeds or fails one day at a
time, therefore building and maintaining a performing team is important.

As a preview of some of the great things going on at this years Kansas
City Developers Conference (www.KCDC.info ) we’ve persuaded some of the
Pre-compiler presenters to provide an overview of their session.

There are many books, trainings or conferences available for learning or
implementing Agile practices – they focus on technical skills and
practices. You can have the best technical skills and Agile practices in

Join us as we explore different aspects of teams, their development and
maturity, and walk away with ideas of how you can recognize and help out
a struggling team.
