Aug '18 Meetup @ VTS - Tools & Creative Ways to Build and Empower Teams

Aug 13, 2018 · New York, United States of America

Note: We are at a new location, VTS, right by Bryant Park. We will start at 6:30 exactly.

* Market of Skills - helps people learn about each other, skills everybody brings to the team, and what they are trying to learn.

Here are some interesting collections of ideas:

* Atlassian Team Playbook https://www.atlassian.com/team-playbook
* Liberating Structures http://www.liberatingstructures.com/
* Google ReWork Guides https://rework.withgoogle.com/guides/

As always, we'll continue the conversation at a bar nearby afterwards.
