Maggie Litton's Summary

I communicate and coordinate. (That's actually a lot harder than it sounds.)

I keep the trains running on time without driving everybody crazy. I help developers and sponsors stay in sync. I play diplomat when everyone else runs out of time, or patience, or desire, and would rather just write some code already. I create flexible processes and creative spaces that enable people to work together with joy and authenticity.

I help groups of people make decisions and get sh*t done.
