The Human Factor
Localization is all about process control, agility, tools and technology… or is it? What about the people who actually do the work? What pressures do they face in the ever-faster, 24×7, distributed world? How can managers motivate amongst chaos, dislocation and unclear career paths; what do people need in order to feel engaged instead of burned-out? In this practical workshop we will help people managers in localization to tackle some of these issues – by sharing experiences, considering some helpful research and taking away personal action plans.
This course is intended for any supervisor level localization professional overseeing three or more internal and external team members.
This course is not currently scheduled.
