Tuesday, October 15 | 9:00AM–5:00PM | Meeting Room 207C
Becoming a technology manager means more than "managing technology." As a manager, you now have responsibilities that include managing people, understanding and negotiating institutional policies and politics, and communicating effectively with staff, faculty, and peer managers. You must also know your technology area, keep up with constant changes, and manage all these areas. Many managers are charged with "doing more with less." In short, your job is immensely more complicated than you might have imagined. Designed for new information technology managers, this interactive seminar will introduce you to basic management philosophy, give you a context for being a successful manager, guide you to EDUCAUSE resources that can help you grow and succeed in your new role, and start you on a path toward increased responsibility and leadership.
