Managing Teams in 'Real Time' with Agile Methodology and Slack Collaboration Tools 7-10-18 #11

Robert J. Curtis (Bob) interviews Matt Kinney, Founder and COO of Reality Smash Episode #11. Matt and Bob explore the challenges of managing teams of technology professionals who are developing virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and 360 degree video. Matt explains his use of agile methodology and of Slack collaboration tools to manage his teams and keep them - as well as Reality Smash's clients - updated in 'real time' on constantly evolving projects. Matt takes on a tough people management question: Aren't technology companies like Reality Smash who develop VR, AR and other companies who develop artificial inteligence (AI) and robotics creating a future without opportunities for many workers? Considering he's a 'tech guy', Matt's response may not surprise you, but his 'burger truck owner to tech leader' personal story shows that he knows what he's talking about.
