Kimberly Wiefling, Founder And President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc. And Author, Scrappy Project Management Series, Discusses How To Prevent Designed-To-Fail Product Development Teams, Organizations And Individuals On The Global Product Management Talk December 17, 2014

Kimberly Wiefling, Founder and President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc. and Author of Scrappy Project Management recently spoke and presented two workshops at The Product Summit in San Francisco. She helps organizations achieve what SEEMS impossible, but is merely difficult. How? By turning managers into leaders and groups into teams. A physicist by education, she realized long ago the limits of technology devoid of human skills – the so-called “touchy feely” aspects of working in teams so vital to success, and so frequently overlooked.

Kimberly says, "In spite of great advances in tools and business processes, many product development teams continue to fail for entirely predictable and avoidable reasons! I'm thrilled to be invited to share my insights and experience with effective product development teams with the Global Product Management Community!"

Solomon live from Studio132 in Oakland, California for the Global Product Management Talk on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12:00 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.
