Details

Bottlenecks are everywhere, and we run into them all the time at work. The natural inclination, upon encountering a bottleneck, is to attempt to eliminate it. But every system has at least one bottleneck, and getting rid of it may not actually be the best option.

Turning Bottlenecks Into Pacesetters is an interactive exercise that explores how to identify bottlenecks and use them to your advantage. Discover what constitutes a true bottleneck, and learn to harness bottlenecks in order to make work flow more smoothly with less stress, while achieving greater overall productivity.

Turning Bottlenecks Into Pacesetters will be presented by Steve Bockman. Steve Bockman is a software developer turned productivity consultant. He is the founder of Agile Unlimited, a company in Northern California that focuses on helping organizations enhance their effectiveness.

Steve is the originator of Team Estimation, a technique for collaboratively estimating work effort. He is also the author of Predictability, a business novel about creating reliable project schedules.
