GovLoop Virtual Summit: The Intersection of Technology and Management

For modern government organizations to run effectively, public servants need to embrace technology and excel in management. However, rapid tech advancements and a changing workforce have created some challenges for agencies. Finding a solution for those challenges is paramount because technology and management are the cornerstones that enable government agencies and individual government employees to achieve their mission goals.

For example, how is the transition to the cloud being implemented or how is data being used to make better, more informed decisions? Both of these examples have technology and management components that require a workforce well versed in both to achieve success.

Government organizations at all levels need to find creative solutions to the dual challenge of tech and management, which often means looking at new strategies and innovations. Join us for our free Virtual Summit: The Intersection of Technology and Management on Wednesday, July 17 from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. ET/7 a.m.-1:30 p.m. PT. You’ll hear from government and industry experts about how to tackle gov’s pressing issues around tech and management.
