WORKSHOP - GitLab for non-tech/project management use
We're looking for volunteer workshop leaders that are subject matter experts and we thought of you for this workshop.
We will provide:
- AV setup (screen, projector, mic)
- Support in connecting to helpful team members (e.g. help build out a slide deck, write an abstract, help rehearse etc)
- Contact with the hotel for any special requests
We're looking to you for:
- 45 min workshop program
- 15 min time for Q&A
- We recommend adding some coaches - you don't need to do this alone.
Please nominate another volunteer leader if you don't feel comfortable leading the workshop, but know that we choose you as we believe you're a great teacher on this topic.
Let us know how we can help with making arrangements in this issue and we'll make it a great workshop together.
If you can do this, let us know. Below are a few deadlines for the content:
- Feb 22nd - Confirmation to lead the workshop
- March 11th - First draft for the workshop
- April 1st - Final version for workshop
Focus on real-life interactions and frictions. It’s a live workshop. Focus on the physical world and let GitLab be an underlying tool that enhances those experiences.
Try not to use digital media. People are already staring at screens all day. Let’s have engaging people and interactions instead. Can we have some interesting ways to represent GitLab UI without a digital screen? Maybe have some props/people represent certain elements. Let’s try to be creative.
@davistye @jgragnola @jjcordz will lead an ice breaker activity. We will use the Gumdrop Structure game. This includes dividing participants into teams of 6 people and providing toothpicks, gumdrops, job (name) tags and instructions.
@jjcordz talks about Project management basic concepts, Project management in everyday life and GitLab tools for project management
@jgragnola shows how marketing is using GitLab broadly. She also shows a specific use case flow (Just Commit integrated campaign build-out across digital marketing, product marketing, content marketing, field marketing, sales development, and marketing programs)
@jjcordz shows how marketing operations is using GitLab. She also shows a specific use case flow specific to how she approaches using GitLab
@davistye shows how product marketing is using GitLab for program management. He also shows a specific use case flow specific to how PMM approaches using GitLab. He'll tie in non-tech project management use to how tech project management uses the tool (i.e customers and GitLab engineering).
