6:15 PM MANAGING PEOPLE IN CHANGING TIMES - PANEL DISCUSSION
The technology industry is going through massive changes. We are seeing technology change at a rapid pace and an increased leveraging of virtual resources such as SaaS, Cloud, etc. How is the technology change impacting the way we manage our IT organizations? How will our IT organization needs change in the next few years? What, if any key capabilities and skills do we need to support out businesses?
Businesses are asking to do more with less and to be more innovative. Unemployment is the highest it has been for technology professionals. Why are we as IT leaders continually fighting for key talent? Is San Diego losing the battle of recruiting to Silicon Valley? How do we manage doing more with less, while responding to more requests for a better work-life balance?
Our teams are comprised of Gen X (Baby Boomers), Gen Y (Millennial) and Gen Z (Internet Generation), each of which have key differences in how they learn, perform. It's not business as usual to attract and retain talent. What are some of the strategies to help manage a changing IT organization? Join us as we have a panel of experts to facilitate a discussion around "Managing People in Changing IT Landscape".
