The Law of Subtraction: How working with less can help you achieve more (Heidi Joy Tretheway, OpenStack Foundation) - In the open source community, we often hear, "I wish I had more--people, money or time." But what if the success or failure of a project isn't determined by more? What if working with less works better?

This provocative presentation introduces the Law of Subtraction tailored to the unique challenges of open source project managers. Global marketing strategist Heidi Joy Tretheway identifies five subtraction strategies that managers and executives can use when resources and timelines are tight. Find out how to juggle priorities despite the "tyranny of the urgent" and how to influence volunteers and indirect reports. Also, discover your managerial blind spots--unique to your work style--that might be undermining your team's performance.
