Kimberly Wiefling, Founder and President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc. and Author of Scrappy Project Management recently spoke and presented two workshops at The Product Summit in San Francisco. She helps organizations achieve what SEEMS impossible, but is merely difficult. How? By turning managers into leaders and groups into teams. A physicist by education, she realized long ago the limits of technology devoid of human skills – the so-called “touchy feely” aspects of working in teams so vital to success, and so frequently overlooked.
