The Lessons We Can Learn

Think Tank - 2:25 pm - 2:50 pm

Have you ever said that the technology part of IT is the easy part? If so, this session is for you! Ron will take you on a journey through lessons learned in his time at Compassion. This will be a time of transparent sharing of lessons learned and the wisdom that is available when we are willing to look at how and why we failed and grow as a result of embracing the difficulty. You will experience some healthy commiseration and will leave with concrete things to avoid and leverage in your journey with people, process, and technology. 


  1. Top-Shelf Hiring in a Tough Market 
  2. You Can't Effectively Lead People Who Aren't Managed Well 
  3. Six-Panel Model for Employee Engagement (strengths, personality, superpower, energy, education, and job history) 
  4. Categorizing and Solving Technical Debt 
  5. Individual Performance Management in an Agile Environment
