“Team Methodologies: How to manage design Prima Donnas!”
Creativity and “out-of-the-box” thinking are excellent attributes for highly skilled and motivated individuals but managing a whole team of such people can quickly become a task more akin to herding wild cats!

But our increasingly competitive industry forces ever higher productivity and ever increasing degrees of difficulty.  So are there some clear-cut winning strategies for creating and running a highly effective team?  And what if your team is multicultural - and even in multiple locations?

Previously we discussed Outsourcing Designs to Low Cost Jurisdictions.  So, please join us this time as we discuss how to create world class performance to justify your Ottawa design teams, take a look at some sound theory and enjoy some humorous anecdotes.

Frank Van Gool, Senior Consultant and Facilitator with Intersol, will share his knowledge of human behaviours and motivations within teams.

Eileen Speirs, VP HR for ZARLINK Semiconductor will describe her experiences of managing exceptional individuals, sometimes with surprising results, and will provide a note of real-world caution.

Please join us in Ottawa to gain better insight into a complex subject and to enjoy valuable networking time with your colleagues in an informal sharing of best industry practices.
