Conference Session: Managing Up, Down, and Across

Getting things done — regardless of the size of your organization — can sometimes be as challenging as the goal itself. How do you write the email, leave the message, and ask the question that will get you the information you need as quickly as possible? How do you get the attention of those in leadership roles whose time is always in short supply? How do you best work with those who are outside of your immediate team? These panelists will share experiences of how they have managed to get things done in their organizations. What approaches work well? What should you be on the lookout to avoid? Are there common mistakes made by people who are new to the profession? We hope you will come away from this session with some insight on what skills to deploy to help you become a more effective development professional.
