Speaking Engagements

How To Work with SMEs and Not Lose Your Mind

On April 18th, Lin Laurie will present a lively and humorous talk called How To Work with SMEs and Not Lose Your Mind. She brings her years of experience working with quirky and sometimes nutty SMEs to the table and will offer you numerous ways to get what you need without going down the notorious SME rabbit hole of excessive details.

Lin provides real-life advice, then leaves you laughing with stories about when she was deeply embedded in the war zones of development at Microsoft, Amazon, Intuit, and other top companies. Often, even after fighting with SMEs to clarify projects with budgets ranging in the millions, Lin would find her documentation was an almost invisible speck at the bottom line of a list of deliverables. Rather than hyperventilating, Lin will show you how she’s been able to maintain her equilibrium and walk away with her head held high while remaining highly sought after for returning contract engagements.
