IT Financial Management Best Practices Conference
Topic:
Thursday 10:00 - 10:45 IT Financial Management Best Practices Panel and Peer Discussion
    A panel of experienced IT Financial Management (ITFM) professionals will address your questions related to any of the financial disciplines of ITFM that deal with planning, controlling, pricing, evaluating and decision-making. Find out how other practitioners in the audience are addressing the same problems and issues that you are facing. We plan to have a lively interaction with all of you attending, whether you are new to ITFM or a veteran yourself. Bring your questions, challenges, and thoughts on what has worked, what has not worked, and what needs improvement. There is no such thing as a dumb or stupid question. We all asked similar questions as we gained our experience in this field. Ask the audience for a show of hands as to how many of them are doing something in a certain way. Best practices are often reflected by “what the least number of organizations are doing – not what the most organizations are doing.” That is why organizations strive to be in the top 10% – not in the other 90%.
