Virtual Conference brought to you by Bluegrass IIBA Chapter and The Uncommon League

It's time to rise against the machines. For far too long, we have allowed technology, systems, and tools to define our processes and strategy. Not only are we constrained and hindered by technology, but forced to use frustrating tools (machines) to communicate with each other. We have lost our ability to tell compelling stories that define our future, whether in Agile or any other framework. We have reached a point of crisis. Does anyone want a SkyNet meeting? We have been warned, "I can't do that for you, Dave." Let's not invite the WOPR, The Circle, or Black Mirror either. It's time to learn how to take back our processes and strategies, tell compelling narratives, and rise up against our machine overlords!

Come with us if you want to live! We'll transport you to the future of training and collaborative learning. Let's ditch the 1968 symposium style conference. In the Rage Against the Machines virtual conference, we're pulling lessons from the most celebrated movie makers to tell better stories. How does this relate to analysis, strategy, or projects? It's not just about User Stories! Like movie genres, there are many types of stories to tell: stories about projects, products, strategies, history, risks, rewards, business values, technologies, and perspectives, and many more. You will learn how to apply Hollywood's billion-dollar box office formula with collaborative techniques that will help you create compelling stories and effective narratives that reach every audience. Hasta la vista baby, the rise against the machines is starting! Popcorn and Milk Duds not provided.

Register for this blockbuster conference and rise against the machines.
