Keynote: Managing the Burnout Burndown

In addition to managing backlogs and burndown charts, technology leaders have to follow an ever-changing software landscape, manage team dynamics, and navigate office politics. It’s no surprise that this leads to burnout. This talk will provide tools to help manage stress and reduce burnout.

People who can get things done often find themselves overwhelmed by their to-do lists.
