Unblocking Middle Management

A 45 minute Hands-On by:

Dr Clara Juanes-Vallejo

Thales e-Security

Carl Whittaker

Thales e-Security

About this Hands-On

Have you ever pushed to do something differently? Do you want to make a change? Yet when you try it seems to get halted by that middle layer of management? Or maybe you have found a solution to this common problem? Either way, this workshop is for you. We will begin by offering a fun activity that will challenge what you considered the norm. Then you get a chance to show what you know and learn from your fellow change agents in the room. Come prepared to be interactive, think a little differently and, most importantly, have some fun!
