Leadership CoP February 2018: The Best Practices Road to Nowhere

The idea of "best practices" has permeated nearly every aspect of work these days, but Spryghtly’s here to tell you that your faith in them is probably misplaced and your implementation probably flawed. Join us to:

  • Explore why “best practices” often lead nowhere
  • Take a look at metrics that can indicate whether you’re on-track or in the ditch
  • Learn “better practices” that go somewhere
  • Walk away with five good pieces of advice on moving forward
