Getting IT Done: Achieving Quality Operations While Tackling Strategic Projects and Retaining Your Team
Monday, June 12th at 4:30 – 5:10 pm
Demands are rising faster than your team or your budget can keep up. Major strategic projects are looming – but day-to-day tactical operations requires immediate attention. There is never the time, money or resources to adequately tackle both, consequently, you are at risk for losing your team to job dissatisfaction and burnout. Not only do you want them deployed on the most impactful work, but they, too, would prefer more fulfilling strategic projects rather than monotonous – yet required – tactical work. In a nutshell, you want to be strategic, but the phone keeps ringing and the tickets keep coming. How do you set yourself – and your team — up for success, where you can take accountability for operational quality but find the time to engage and be more material on the business issues facing the organization?
