How to Celebrate Success

Presented by: Christopher Yue
Room: Plenary Room (1310)
Time: 11:15-12:00 PM
I often struggle with the feeling that no one really thinks about IT professional colleagues until something goes wrong. We obviously do much more than just putting out fires.
This session will discuss best practices to communicate and celebrate our successes, a step we rarely see or include in our planning, but is arguably the most important step we should take. After completing a complex project, most of us do very little more than sending an email out to stakeholders and inform them that the project is complete.
Celebrate our success is much more than just patting ourselves on the back. It is an important and useful tool for stakeholder engagement, for user education, and for testing and feedback gathering. It does not hurt that our celebrations will also raise awareness of our accomplishments.
Join me to talk about how to celebrate our successes!
Session participants will walk away with a celebration plan they have created for a project they are working on, based on ideas from the presentation and the community brainstorming portion.
