Traversing the Org Chart

Singapore, 27 February 2017 | Hong Kong 27 February 2017

SUMMARY

Like many techies, Kris spent her career studiously avoiding going into management. Then over the course of three years, she embarked on two radical experiments: The first was to make the leap from an individual contributor on a tech team in a traditional hierarchical company to the person in charge. Then a year and a half later, she took a role as an “all rounder” in a hip startup dedicated to staying as flat and managerless as possible. She’ll walk you through the lessons she learned along the way, like: What do managers actually *do* all day long? Is “good manager” an oxymoron? And are you really better off without one? (Spoiler: holacracy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!)
