As we near the 2016 Colorado Women in Leadership (WIL) event on September 15th, we wanted you all to have a chance to get to know our panelists! We will kick off our WIL panelist blog series with Brenda Horn, VP of IT & CIO for Enterprise Computing Solutions at Arrow Electronics, Inc. Get to know Brenda by reading her answers to the following questions!
The world of project management has shifted in multiple directions through a span of decades. The introduction of the Agile Manifesto has driven the concepts and applicability of project management to new levels, not just beyond the atmosphere of software development, but into all realms of the industry. Taking the main concepts of the manifesto, such as “individuals and interactions”, “working software”, “customer collaboration” and “responding to change”, can be applied within multiple types of projects outside of software development. The point here is to understand where this applicability can be championed within organizations that maintain and execute a project portfolio to consistently increase customer value, and to maintain and optimize schedule and costs while minimizing risk.
During our webinar, Addressing the Elephant in the Room: The Effects of HR Technology on Culture Transformation, we had more questions than we could get to.

What is a situation where you were asked to improve employee engagement? And what was your approach?
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the annual ISTE conference in Denver along with 16,000 other practitioners, numerous sponsors, many entrepreneurs, and innovators, and an impressive set of vendor booths. Whether you are in this space, in the education system, or not, this is a must read! I had not been to this event before, and I was reminded of the amazing buzz you have when that many educational leaders and innovators are together in one place! Not only did it give me a chance to meet one-on-one with customers in a casual setting, but I spent time with entrepreneurs and practitioners (aka teachers, principals and administrative support) talking about what is needed to transform Education with IT from many aspects. It was clear to me that Lewis Fowler should be part of the solution of the future around transforming education. Below outlines my insights from the event, and key messages that really resonated with me.
