You Will Discover

In the last 5 years, the nature of most Information Technology/Information Services departments has changed radically.  The impact of a tight economy, globalization, out sourcing of core functions, Sarbanes-Oxley and ‘doing more with less’ have been added to the traditional pressures of increasing customer expectations, constantly changing technology and a core work force motivated quite differently from other employees.  Entering leadership positions in the IT/IS department today requires radically different skills than just a few years ago.  Those who have been in the leadership roles during the changes have been challenged to change themselves and develop new areas of expertise.  This seminar examines the current issues and provides a framework for handling the new changes that will inevitably evolve.
