The Advanced Curriculum Track (ACT) at ILTA 2012 aspires to bring “graduate” level content to senior executives in IT, knowledge management, finance and marketing. It targets thought leaders in these four areas — those already at the “C” level and those who aspire to the C level — and pulls together thoughtful, provocative content that you’re not likely to encounter elsewhere.
The Advanced Curriculum Track includes the following sessions:
- ROI: Not a Measurement for Technology Success
- Forget About Internal Initiatives, Focus on Client Satisfaction
- Five Reasons Why Terms Like “Practice Support,” “Knowledge Management” and “Financial Services” Miss the Point
- IT Metrics That Matter to Management
- Next-Generation AFAs
- Integrate Data Points To Boost Productivity and Revenue
Get details about these sessions from our ACT information page.
The Alternative Format Track (AFT) at ILTA 2012 is designed for attendees who find they get more from educational sessions when they are actively involved. These sessions are intended for people who like to roll up their sleeves and jump in. Each of these sessions has a completely different but highly interactive format. No long-winded speeches, no interminable slide decks. Rather, you’ll be part of the action. Best of all, each of these sessions will give you a chance to tailor the learning to the challenges you face at the office. These sessions are not theoretical; each is intended to give you new skills and insights that are directly applicable to your work.
The Alternative Format Track includes the following sessions:
- Creating Process Maps: An Interactive Workshop
- A New Way of Thinking About Applications
- My Secret Weapon: Approaches and Tools To Help You Succeed
- The Insider’s Guide to Negotiating Fees
- Forget the Wild Goose Chase: Focus on High-Impact Projects
