People Persist

We’re living in a time where design has never been more valued and technology accelerates ever faster. There are more companies at billion-dollar valuations than ever before. And yet, hustle culture hasn’t fully evolved, and startups are still moving so fast that a few things do get broken along the way. Before we reach a critical stage, let’s pay more attention to the stuff that persists – like people. This talk will show you how to diagnose and solve for the People Layer, including:

  • activities and resources to increase productivity and build empathy
  • proven methods for soliciting and providing feedback
  • the configuration of teams and optimization of team performance
  • relationship maps, personal user manuals – and more
