Managing Change and Improvement with Technology Tools

Managing Change and Improvement with Technology Tools
A group of speakers will discuss how various current and trending technologies, such as GIS, aerial drones, asset management systems, smart vehicles, and others are changing how Public Works leaders are managing their responsibilities. The discussion will cover how to prepare to use, implement, and sustain the technology in a range of settings and operations. The speakers will discuss the requirements for skills and tools, along with management support, that must be in place prior to implementation and utilization of technology, and to institutionalize the capability. Common pitfalls of using technology will be outlined, along with benefits that can be obtained. This presentation will cover some of APWA’s top trending technologies.  10-11 AM Central time
