VITA's fifth annual IT Project Management Summit

VITA’s fifth annual IT Project Management Summit will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen. The summit will provide IT project managers a cost-effective educational and networking opportunity, focused on leadership roles in the project management community. The educational component will include case studies, industry best practice and relevant project management topics. Highlights of the summit include guest speakers, educational sessions and problem solving exercises.

The theme of this year’s summit is “Spotlight on Leadership.” The ideal skillset for project managers is a combination of technical, leadership, and strategic business management expertise. While technical skills will always be a core component of project management, added skills in leadership and business intelligence have become vital to supporting long-term strategic objectives. By focusing on developing these additional skills, project managers can better meet evolving demands and become a more valued strategic partner. The spotlight on leadership will help summit attendees evaluate and develop their leadership skills to become better overall project managers.
