What we (should have) learned from Lord of The Rings

When we want to learn something new, we often observe how other people do it. We read about earlier, successful, like experiences. But we are often deceived. We hear only the good things, the things people did right. Join me for an adventure that did not always go well, where mistakes were made, people were hurt, and yet, the project was a success.

Learn together with me from Lord of the Rings, how to create a team, how to work together and how to finish a project against all odds.
