What a People-Centric Methodology Looks Like

Innovation has had two decades of software-centric methodologies. Project success rates are not great. The employee experience is not great. What makes innovation difficult is not software, so this should be no surprise. What makes innovation difficult are people – how we interact, collaborate, and compete with each other. Therefore, a people-centric methodology is not revolutionary. It’s just overdue.
This session explains how small changes to three well-known references form the recipe for a people-centric methodology. These changes raise a team’s discipline and empathy, simplify messy project plans, and convert your organization’s communication traffic jams into a symphony.


  • How to improve on the RACI and structure a team into a healthy rhythm of durable decisions
  • Thoughtful templates are small hinges that swing large doors (of culture)
  • How the performing arts give you a collaborative advantage
