The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name: Strong People, Strong Studio: How You Can Strengthen Your People's and Your Studio's Resilience
Speaker(s): Johanna Schober
Company Name(s): Sproing Interactive Media GmbH
Track / Format: Production
Overview: This talk will cover, the concepts of individual and organizational resilience, and show what meaning they had in the 14 years studio history of Sproing. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from difficult situations, like a material deforming under pressure and then finding back to its old shape, a person experiencing trauma and recovering from it, or an organization adapting smartly when hit by disruptive events. Our industry asks a lot of us as individuals. We constantly need to change and grow, since the world around us turns so fast. We face a lot of insecurity, change jobs, change locations, work across time zones, and we still love the product we make! All this can be inspiring, but also very exhausting. Johanna will share examples for crisis situations from her studio history, and analyze what role resilient traits played in overcoming them.
