Blurb about the JazzCode Live program:
How do you enhance the productivity of professional teams when every day is different? Teams must often perform in real-time without time to rehearse.Traditional planning is being replaced by complex interactions driven by a highly dynamic context. Rather than the product or service being a result of our conversations; our conversations is the product or service we offer, and this requires a new mode of operation, one where being fully immersed in the moment is more important than having all the answers.
