Does this sound familiar? You’ve spent the last few years building up your company, restructuring your department, strengthening your team, and moving ahead of the competition.
But, now, pundits are saying a recession is coming. Will all that you’ve gained in recent years be lost?
A recession often means lower budgets — and with that, a hiring freeze. Or, worse, reducing staff size. But preparing now, while the economy is still working in your favor, can reduce the toll on your company and team.
As a manager, it’s time to recession-proof. Consider:
- What new technology is about to make yours obsolete?
- Who’s got a new management technique that is doubling productivity?
- Is crowd-sourcing about to take a huge bite out of your business?
- Where are all the smart young grads itching to work?
Work smarter by turning your attention to continuing education and making new connections.
And the perfect place to solidify your company and team for whatever lies ahead is at the Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference. Held October 14-16 in Portland, OR, it features a wide range of presentations and workshops by industry leaders, up-and-comers, and outsiders who care about quality.
This is your chance to be proactive about the future. Take your team’s top performers and your future all-stars to Portland. You’ll spend your days engrossed in the latest breakthroughs and best practices in testing, quality, and managing those hard-working quality professionals. And by night, hit the streets with your team and new colleagues to review what you learned over a great meal, a pint of local brew, or a glass of Oregon wine.
