Presentation Abstract:

Are you a Baby Boomer? A Gen X? A Gen M? Do you pride yourself in quality of work, meeting deadlines or having a real life…or is it all of them? A recent Canadian study of North American youth shows that the generation gap between more experienced and newer IT workers is adding complexity to managing cultural differences based on age and environment.

Karen leads an interactive workshop on increasing personal collaboration with developers, DBAs, and other technical IT staff.

Topics will include:

* What are Traditionalists, Boomers, Gen Xers, Gen Yers?
* Why do Generational Differences Matter?
* Are They All Whiners?
* Separating Generational Bunk from The Facts
* Planning for improved personal and organizational performance
