Jurgen Appelo

Topic:

Making the workplace happy keeps employees motivated and keeps customers coming back. It's not about gimmicks or perks that disrupt productivity; it's about finding the passion that drives your business, and making it contagious.

In this session Jurgen will present practical things that people can do next Monday morning to make the organization a happier place to work, with people who run experiments and drive innovation. He will discuss real solutions for common management problems such as defining roles and responsibilities, creating meaningful team metrics, and replacing performance appraisals with something more useful. These techniques are relevant not only for managers, but for everyone who is concerned about the organization.

About the speaker:

Jurgen Appelo is an internationally known writer, speaker, trainer, entrepreneur, dreamer and blogger. His insights on Agile management, organizational change, and personal development have led to Inc.com calling him a Top 50 Leadership Expert, a Top 50 Leadership Innovator and a Top 100 Great Leadership Speaker. He is the author of  Management 3.0 and Managing for Happiness, which offers practical ideas to engage workers, improve work, and delight clients. Jurgen was a popular keynote speaker at our Agile Games 2013 conference, and blogs at NOOP.NL.

Member Discussion Forums PDF Print E-mail

We have a new feature!  It took a lot of work to implement, and required significant changes to the layout of the website (we think for the better), but we've added member discussion forums to Agile New England!  It's open for all Agile New England members, but you must be logged in to even see the menu option for it.  This is in part because it is meant as a benefit to our members (defined in our rules as anyone who has a login on our website), and in part for security and spam prevention.  The addition of the discussion forums is a big step in our efforts to help build the Agile community, even outside our regular meetings.

Once logged in, you will see a new menu option under Members Only, called Member Forums.  These forums can be used for talking about a particular meeting, beginner topics, advanced topic, jobs needed or opportunities announced, offering the group feedback, and even for coordinating rideshares, as was asked at several meetings.  For more information, be sure to visit the Rules and Help tabs once you get into the Member Forums.  Feel free to give us feedback on how we can improve the discussion forums.

Membership in Agile New England is open to everyone. There is no cost to join. Members have the right to vote in chapter elections, and to receive member benefits such as discounts on books and conferences. Becoming a member also makes it easier to register for an event, since most of the form will be filled out for you if you are logged in

You do not need to be a member to attend meetings and events, and registering for a meeting does not make you a member. Registering as a user on the website makes you a member, so please register as a member here. You will need to confirm your membership annually (we will send you a reminder).
