Slack and the Other Hidden Secrets of the Agile Organization

This webinar from Soundview features the thoughts and ideas of Tom DeMarco as presented in his book, Slack: Getting Past Burnout, Busywork and the Myth of Total Efficiency.

DeMarco articulates the soft problems that plague organizations and defines a more actionable, useful model for leadership. Discover the pathological and destructive nature of your busyness while you learn how to balance efficiency with flexibility and effectiveness. Tom sheds some light on why companies have become change-phobic, and how to deal with it.
