Semit recording from SumIT summer startup marathon

    It was a wonderful summer day (August 18, 2011) when Alexander Orlov (an independent consultant in project management, Vice President of the Guild of Program Project Managers) came to the site of the SumIT Startup Marathon (St. Petersburg, Kronverksky pr. 49, NRU ITMO) to hold a seminar on the topic “How startup teams are formed”. The seminar brought together more than a hundred people and dragged on until the evening. The presentation contained a lot of useful information, therefore, recalling the past SumIT and waiting for the future WinIT, we post the video of this seminar in this topic!

    Alexander Orlov - “How teams are formed in IT companies”.

    Seminar abstracts:
    What is the skill of managing difficult and smart people? Why does the team work like clockwork for some managers and people solve complex problems and get real pleasure from it?
    A manager and a team can be on one side of the barricade, and then for this tandem there are practically no organizational and technical problems. The success of the project directly depends on how much the manager and engineers can work together into one mechanism and become one team.
    We will analyze what mechanisms operate during the life cycle of a team and how it can be influenced.
