Building a Workplace People Love- Just Add Joy - Sept 25th Agile Lean Practitioners Meetup of NJ

Join us on Sept 25th, 2017 at the Lean-Agile Practitioners of NJ Meetup, when Rich Sheridan, The CEO of Menlo Innovations and author of Joy, Inc. — How We Built a Workplace People Love, will share his insights on 'Building a Workplace People Love'. 
Rich Sheridan will explore what an intentionally joyful culture must choose as its focus. He will discuss what joy looks like, feels like, how it is organized. Along the way, you will be confronted by paradoxical approaches of how workplace noise increases productivity, how two people at one computer outperforms hero-based organizations 10-to-1, how rigor and discipline emanate from a shared-belief system, how transparency conquers fear, how all of the disciplines you study including agile, lean, and six sigma when done well are really about building human relationships at the intersections of business and technology, between project management and software development, between development and design and how quality can be a natural result of a team built on trust.
About the Speaker:
Rich Sheridan had an all-consuming thought during a difficult mid-career in the chaotic technology industry... things can be better. Much better.
In 2001, Rich and his co-founder James Goebel invented their own company to “end human suffering in the world as it relates to technology” by returning joy to one of the most unique endeavors mankind has ever undertaken: the invention of software. Their unique approach to custom software design, they named it High-tech Anthropology® has produced custom software that delights users rather than frustrating them.
The CEO of Menlo Innovations and author of Joy, Inc. — How We Built a Workplace People Love travels the world speaking about joy, creativity, and human energy in the workplace.
