"Shop Talk" Group
for Technical Managers

August Topic
"Evangelizing IT"

Led by Jimmy Ledbetter, Jack Henry & Associates
and Jordan Phillips, Classy Llama

“IT is just a Cost Center.” We have all heard this phrase several times. Come join other IT Managers to find a way to convince your business that you are more than just a cost center.

Introduction: The "Shop Talk" Group will focus on things that keep our technical managers awake at night. We will share ideas that have helped others with the tough issues distinctive to these types of jobs. We will delve into how others in "Similar" positions deal with "Similar" issues.  We will dig into Process Improvement, training and what are our options, what are the new innovative cutting edge trends.  These are just a few focused discussions this group will have.  We will let topics be determined by the group.

Target Audience: This group is open to managers, owners, executives, or anyone tasked with business decisions and operations.

Schedule: This group typically meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 1:15pm to 2:15pm (Same Day as AITP General Meeting)

Group Leader: Vickie Hensley (Jack Henry)
