A few things to announce today, and it feels really good to be able to share. 

  1. The website (www.halasaleh.com) is undergoing a major overhaul, and yes, there will be new blog posts!
  2. I am launching my new company, 27Sprints.
    My focus will be to use lean startup and agile product development concepts to help companies and entrepreneurs (you know how I love 'em) strategize, plan, and deliver successful products.
    Since I also have project and product management experience, and am passionate about agile, I will also help implement and execute product delivery, and work with my faves: development teams.
  3. I am speaking tomorrow at the Utah Big Mountain Data and SQL Saturday conference, which is organized by the amazing Utah Geek Events team. My talk is titled "Be a Data Hero and Drive Business Results".

    Synopsis: "Companies need data to help them determine what's wo rking, what isn't working, and where they need to be spending their money (or not). A lot of companies today are starting to understand that data is a key component (although not the only component) for delivering successful products.

    However, there are still gaps between the data that business executives think is relevant, the data that is actually relevant, and the decisions that are made based on the interpretation of the data. 

    In this session we will talk about how you can be the voice of reason, and how you can potentially redirect company strategy based on key metrics and user behavioral data. Ultimately, you could drive business success by taking a leadership role in data delivery,analysis, and communication."
