Leading Change from the Edge

Thursday, April 18 | 11:45AM–12:30PM | Gateway I
Session Type: Professional Development

Higher education today is changing rapidly, and as technologists we need to be willing to change with it and lead when appropriate. Historically we have primarily considered major projects to come from individual units or from large, central IT organizations. While these can be effective, there is an opportunity to lead rapid change and innovation by identifying transformative projects that are led by collaborations of cross-organizational distributed IT teams. In this session we'll discuss the idea as well as when, how, and why to attempt it and share some lessons learned from two years of major, distributed technology collaborations at UConn.
