The course discusses the impact of emotional blind spots in technology projects. The Cambridge Dictionary offers us two definitions of the word blind spot. The first being, “an area that you are not able to see, especially the part of a road you cannot see when you are driving, behind and slightly to one side of the car" The second definition of blind spot is, “a subject that you find very difficult to understand at all, sometimes because you are not willing to try.” But, how does this all tie in with our emotions and technology projects? Well, that’s what we’ll explore in this video. The featured expert is Wesley Higbee. Wesley, is the author of the book, Commitment to Value, How to Make Technical Projects Worthwhile. He has years of experience developing software and working with teams to improve how software is developed in order to meet business objectives. After successfully completing this segment you should be able to: understand how emotional blind spots can impact technology projects, recognize the project threats and common blind spots you should be mindful of, and discuss how to deal with blind spots by utilizing the PEAR Process.
