Monthly Chapter In-Person Meeting:
On Wednesday, September 13, our monthly Chapter meeting was held in person (for the first time since March 2020). Our topic for this meeting was on the so called 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR).
In this presentation, Michael Milutis provided a technological overview of 4IR, and a simple set of heuristics to help Program Managers continue being proactive in:
1) the social, economic and political challenges that this revolution is presenting across the planet;
2) how to frame their 4IR thinking in terms of business value;
3) how (and why) the 4IR workforce needs to redefine what work looks like and find new synergistic ways to adapt to technology;
4) how managers can quickly develop a practical, functional level of technological literacy that spans all of 4IR;
5) how project managers can take the lead in their organizations so that they can gain real world experience on 4IR projects;
6) what tools are available and why you must start using these tools immediately
About the Presenter: Michael Milutis is an international keynote speaker, instructor, and 25 year veteran of the IT industry who has dedicated his career to helping individuals learn, develop, and compete within a shifting technology landscape.
He has worked with organizations from around the world to develop innovative learning cultures and he coaches individuals and teams so that they can develop continuously, grow personally, and realize their highest potential.
