Integrate technology into the governance and operation of the county
358 Technology for Nontechnology Executives and Officials: Bridge the Gap
“Always connected” is the new normal for counties as advances in information technologies and public expectations for service quickly evolve. Yet often there is a gap in communication and understanding between IT, county and department management, and Board governance of technology. Discussion explores steps to insure IT is not an isolated discipline, but rather an integral component of the overall organizational governance and operations. Designed for Board Members and senior executives, topics explored include: best practices in IT integration into the county and department strategy, governance policies, management of IT projects, manage the risks of a digital world, leverage enabling capacity of technology while balancing costs of investments, and how to avoid the failures of technology. Strategies are shared to help build policies, cultures, and systems to bridge gaps to make real connections happen.
Instructors: Stephen Monaghan is the Chief Information Officer of Nevada County; Monica Nemo is the County Administrator of San Joaquin County.
