Abstract:

Flirting is about connecting. A German university now requires their IT engineers take a flirting class—not to attract a partner, but to learn how to interact better in the workplace. Discover how flirting techniques translate to use in a business setting—inspiring us to create stronger connections and greater understanding of our stakeholders. Using 8 Steps, you’ll learn how to connect with your stakeholders—to better understand requirements and build business value. “Flirting” With Your Stakeholders creates the connection that can make a significant difference in a project’s success.
