Howe School Alliance for Technology Management

“We have gained useful insights in many topics pertinent to our business, including innovation, technology leadership, project management and systems thinking. The interactive approach to the roundtable meetings fosters a collaborative spirit between academic contacts and member companies that can be a springboard for new initiatives.”

Best practices. Better results. The Howe School Alliance for Technology Management

Stop if this is you. You know the value of entrepreneurial thinking, but your company’s culture is limiting that creativity. You want to learn the ways technology can help you better run your company, but don’t want to go back to school. You’re so caught up in the day-to-day rush of where your business is that you don’t have the time to step back and examine where it’s going. You’re looking for fresh ideas to help foster more innovation at your company. You know other managers are having these problems, but you don’t know how they handle them.

These are some of the most common reasons companies join the Howe School Alliance for Technology Management. Come learn what sets us apart and how we can help your company stay nimble in the ever-changing business world.

About the Alliance

For more than 20 years, the Alliance has gathered representatives from a range of industries to showcase best practices in innovation, strategy and technology management. Meetings become lively debates as partners share their experiences in a range of management issues, with conversations shaped by leaders in industry and academia.

The Alliance stands out because of its members and its methods. Partners come from a diverse band of industries, from telecom, life sciences and defense, to insurance, publishing and government. Those members learn from Stevens researchers — who explore areas like project management, data analytics, risk, innovation and business processes — and each other as they work to overcome challenges in using technology to exploit competitive opportunities and drive strategy. That learning takes place in roundtable meetings, at conferences, through a thought leadership journal and in periodic workshops.

I’d welcome the chance to speak with you in greater detail about the Alliance, the companies it’s helped, the benefits of joining and the topics we’ve explored. Please contact me to discuss how your organization can take advantage of partnering with us.

Culture change

More than 30 practitioners attended the Sept. 10 roundtable meeting, where they learned about the dynamics of changing a company's culture. Executives with the host company, John Wiley & Sons, offered the company up as an example of a successful enterprise that has shifted its business model in a digital enconomy, and needed to update its culture as a result.

The next roundtable meeting will take place Nov. 19 at the campus of Stevens Institute of Technology. More information coming soon.
