How do IT organizations shift from order takers to proactive solutions providers? When is it time to change an organization and what is the best model? IT leadership requires more than technology expertise, solid management practices and reliable operations – it requires vision and the ability to design organizations optimizing current operations with planned transitions for future outcomes. .Key elements of Organizational Transformation planning are People, Process, and Technology. Lynn Ryan will discuss the important principles of Organizational Transformation, recognizing and seizing opportunities for improvement, IT and business goals alignment, evolving a culture, and the importance of change leadership.
We will be partnering with the American Society of Women Accountants for an Inspirational and Exciting evening in celebration of “Women’s History Month”.
