We held our final WLiT event of 2017 on October 24. We’ll have more details on 2018 events soon!
Influencing Across the Organization: Building Strategic Partnerships with the Business.
There is a current trend in the Twin Cities marketplace and within companies all over the world to turn transactional, task-oriented technology and business communities into valuable strategic partners. As an employee in Technology or other business function, you may be finding what got you to where you are today may not be enough to get you to where you need to be in the future. The emphasis on communication and consultative relationships is more critical than ever before.
In this interactive session we will discuss how to more effectively:
- Build trust and strengthen relationships across business functions
- Gain credibility and visibility for our teams and our projects
- Collaborate with internal and external clients productively
