5 Whys Challenge: Oren Ellenbogen

Did you take the opportunity for getting tickets in the Early Bird prices? Good. You can rest comfortably and read the next part of our saga.

And if you haven’t, just go and get those tickets, for you and your friends. You’ll thank me later (in person, I’m also presenting there, remember?)

This week, Oren Ellenbogen takes the hot seat, as we ask the tough questions. Oren is the author of the wildly popular “Software Lead Weekly” newsletter, and he speaks regularly about management topics for software teams. Oren’s talk is “Engineering your culture: How to keep your engineers happy”. And who doesn’t like happy?

(Note: I’m not talking about this Happy. This one got old really quickly)

Anyway, on with the challenge:

Why should people come to the conference?

Because curiosity is your true unfair advantage in your career. This conference is about having an agile mind, learning new ideas and sharing some glorious wins and losses.

Why should people come to my session?

We do our best learning when we are emotionally connected to what we do (mission) and the team that we’re apart of. I’m going to share some interesting ideas on how you can maximize for happiness and engagement, so the rest could follow.

Why did I choose this topic?

Because happiness at work is pretty awesome topic to talk about.

Why do I think you should also go to “AGILE – THE MISSING LECTURE” session by URI NATIV?

Two reasons. One, is that Uri Nativ is a truly inspiring individual I personally always learn from. Two, because we all need to learn more about human psychology to drive people experiment with new concepts (process is just one of many). Uri always delivers on that.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Are you sure it was a chicken?


Yes, I’m sure!

I’m mean, other people have seen it too. Check out other 5 Whys Challengers reports on poultry and traffic.

Anyway, this is for now. Another victim, I mean challenger will rise to the challenge in a few days.
