A Business Forum Panel Luncheon
Tuesday August 27th, 2002
The River Place from 11:45am to 1:30pm
The Business Forum is going to organize a Panel Debate Luncheon in Portland, Oregon (similar to those pictured here from past events) to allow decision makers (Vice President, Director, Officer level in Information Technology, HR, Finance, Security and Operations) in larger firms and organizations to pose questions to a panel of experts and to be able to join in an open debate to consider how management's goals, needs, obligations and tasks have changed from just a year ago. The Stock Market collapse this year, a shrinking Global Economy, the Recession accompanied by actual deflation in the American Economy not seen in twenty years, and now terrorist attacks on the home soil of America have changed everything from just twelve months ago and management is undeniably faced with new demands.
Technology fueled the growth of the American and Global Economy and changed the way we manage from what we faced twenty years ago, and only by reevaluating how to use and apply technology can we be sure of growing out of the present situation fast enough to put the overall global economy back on track.
The Concept we have accepted is that the needs of management have changed from what they have been for more than two decades, due to the downturn of the Stock Market, changes in employment procedures, the impact of deflation, the War on Terrorism and the Recession. When the pundits stated that 9/11 changed everything, they were probably more right than even they realized at the time they said it, although we were already six months into the development of the present recession when it happened. Managing an organization during a crisis obviously needs different answers to managing an organization in a growth economy, which is what we have all enjoyed for the last twenty years; in fact many of our younger managers have never experienced that which they now find themselves embroiled in on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, we believe, and our members are continuously informing us, that most senior decision makers would welcome the chance to take part in such a debate about technology, new methods and reevaluation of business processes at this time.
