The Power of Teams

Wednesday, March 02 | 4:15PM–5:30PM | Colorado Ballroom GH, Lower Level 2
Session Type: Professional Development
In higher education, IT's fundamental goal is to help further the institution's mission. Collaboration with stakeholders helps IT navigate various needs, obstacles, politics, and constraints to help our customers achieve their goals. However, IT professionals often focus on technology at the expense of collaboration and trust. But we can all change this! In this session, we will focus on the importance and benefits of teams; identify team types, including cross-functional teams and the role of the team leader; discuss barriers to success; and engage in shaping a successful team.

OUTCOMES: Develop a better understanding of team dynamics * Identify team strategies of planning, collaboration, and execution * Practice teamwork to accomplish specific outcomes
