Technology (Virtual) Forum - 210223

"Embracing Tech to Keep Delivering Insights During Pandemic" presented by Bill McDowell

PMI Atlanta Technology Forum provides an environment for Project Managers to adopt and benefit from the latest technology in their professional life and career. The forum also plans to bring speakers to discuss & share the best practices in technology.


My firm does a lot of in-person research, like focus groups or in-home ethnographies. When COVID restrictions set in last year, and as they continue today, we had to shift gears and rely more heavily on online and mobile platforms in order to keep serving our clients. I’ll be sharing some of those examples, and drawing parallels to the same “pivoting” that all students and professionals have wrestled with over the past year.
