"Productivity Sucks, How About Being Effective" an evening with Jim Benson

Join us for what is sure to be an informative and provocative evening.  Jim Benson, the co-author of "Personal Kanban" and a contributing author of "Beyond Agile: Tales of Continuous Improvement", will speak to us about the myths surrounding our work and how we think of it when determining what is and is not productive.  He'll be joined by Tonianne DeMaria Barry the co-author of "Personal Kanban" and his partner in crime at Modus Cooperandi (http://moduscooperandi.com/) and a fellow founder/organizer/blame-sharer of the successful kaizen camps being held around the world.

This is the first in what we hope will be many opportunities to hear from people outside the narrow confines of software testing as they present their thoughts on quality and what we do in general.

    I'm heading over to the Thirsty Bear for a brew and a bite to eat now. I should be there in 15 minutes. I'm wearing a grumpy sweatshirt if you want to stop by and say hi!

    Just a reminder, I'm going to need actual and verifiable names by tomorrow morning if you'd like to attend this meetup. Some of you cheeky monkeys are not using your actual names in your meetup profile. However if your ID actually says you are "Master Tester, ESQ" then it's all good.
