Everything I Need to Know about Project Management I Learned from Dungeons & Dragons

May 13, 2019

I always thought of myself as a good leader and great at improvising and solving problems. However, I was a little nervous as a public speaker. Then I tried the ultimate test of my leadership and speaking skills: becoming a Dungeon Master for Dungeons & Dragons. This lead me on a long journey in which I learned how to stand up in front of a crowd, manage difficult personalities, and work with a team with varied skills in order to achieve a difficult goal.
In this lecture Amanda Lange, Microsoft Engineer and long-time gamer, will discuss the principles of psychology and motivation that make a Dungeons & Dragons game great…. And how these same principles can be used in a workplace environment to drive a team project to success. Utilize the strengths of your party members and set forth with everyone leveling up together to deliver!
