Adam Monago

Vice President, Client Services

Good facilitation skills are essential for everyone in software development. In fact, everyone facilitates whether they know it or not. If individuals work on a team, manage an organization, or simply work with others, the opportunity to facilitate arises often. Adam Monago will lead attendees in exploring the common patterns and anti-patterns — for both the facilitator and the participants — he's seen and experienced during facilitation interactions. Monago will lead this highly interactive session and have some fun along the way taking on roles like Gladiator, Guide, and Conclusion Jumper. He will have attendees explore the facilitation behaviors that work — and ones that don't — and participate in activities that provide an opportunity for attendees to practice new facilitation techniques. Participants will laugh and learn, and take away new skills and tools to help them and their team become more effective facilitators.
