Online Event via WebEx

May 25, 2011

DESCRIPTION:
The rapid growth of the Internet as a fundamental communications and transaction platform has put significant and growing pressure on organizations in every area of the culture, to adopt, create and deliver increasingly capable XML-based content to their audiences.

While the primary emphasis in this evolution has often been on the architecture and technology involved a major determiner of the success or failure of many efforts has been the role, impact on and response of the human components of the involved organizations. Issues of control, cross group work breakdown, value-added responsibility, funding and decision-making prerogatives have confounded many well intentioned organizations attempting to upgrade their information abilities by focusing exclusively on technology.

This presentation explores the relationships among the technological, human and organizational factors, providing a roadmap for effective navigation of both.
