Session Level: Beginner
Most IT Professionals want to learn new technologies every day. They want the newest, shiniest thing. Reality says that we might not have the budget to continuously implement new technologies in our workplace. How can we change this reality and implement technology that best benefits our organization while keeping our IT talent engaged?
Retaining IT talent is a top priority these days. Each time you lose talent, you lose more than just the individual:
- Teams suffer
- Deliverables suffer
- Knowledge is lost
How do you keep your IT talent and keep them happy? Why, building a culture of Innovation, of course!
During this session we will discuss the steps to transform IT departments from tactical to strategic, from break/fix to innovative, and managing the new team going forward.
