Data Activation is exactly what is sounds like: activating the data we collect and putting it to use in decision-making and solution creation. We only make data-driven decisions.
In this workshop, we'll explore different types of data (not just numbers), methods of analyzing that data (not just with software, but yes, that too), and techniques we can use to draw the stories and solutions from our findings.
Change Management is the process of keeping development scaled and in flow so that organizations and/or the projects we complete do not get overwhelmed with change, grow too quickly, or get stuck for too long.

Joy & Pleasure in Strategic Thinking
Having a joyous center for our work is essential for us not to feel enslaved by it. Particularly for those of us working in stewarding more liberating, connected, joyous social ecosystems, our work reciprocates the joy we put into it.
In some tech circles, the concept of Human Centered Design can help us create products that we can say bring value to our customers. For non-corporate and grassroots organizations, the experiences and environments we help produce should bring value that can (but not always, nor should it always) be measured by the humans we serve as well as keep us accountable in our work.
In this course, we'll go over how to think about designing our strategies and using strategic thinking from a place of joy.
Agile Project Management has most often been used as a method of managing software delivery that prioritizes the user experience, continuous improvement and delivery of software over heavy process documentation.
It is ideal for smaller teams with diverse skillsets.
In this class, we'll look at Agile methodologies from a mostly non-technical perspective, using instead roadmaps for social and cultural technologies. The beautiful thing is, the technical and non-technical applications of Agile, are essentially the same.
