Target audience: Any

Taken from the viewpoint that all efficient industrial processes are identical at their core, Art Eaton examines the IT industry from a boat builder's point of view.

Take a trip around the boatyard as we explore the following topics:

* Self Identification in Organizational Structure
* Coupling Authority with Responsibility
* Establishing and maintaining collaborative relationships with customers
* Analyzing project specifications and goals
* Delivery of products
* Preparing for the next job.

This talk is all about running a successful, professional and happy boatyard where people find value and comfort in their jobs, the quality of work is high, and customers know what they are getting for their money.

...sort of. Art will be applying his business experience gained his marine engineering, medical, military and IT background to present you with sea-story about project management that people in all industries can identify with.
