    DFW*ATW Executive Leadership Forum (ELF)

  • 20 Aug 2019 8:30 AM | Martha Osborn (Administrator)

    The Feld Group Institute (TFGI) is providing DFW*ATW members 2 scholarships, valued at $3000 each, for the Operationalizing Enterprise Architecture class, “Transforming in the Modern Era”, for August 20-22, 2019

    As a key part of transformation in the Modern Era, companies must do more than prescribe and govern an Enterprise Architecture. We must also build it and operationalize it. We will delve into the changing nature of the enterprise architecture required to support accelerated modernization and change. Leaders in the class will learn – just as importantly – how to put in motion the required organization, funding, and operating structures that are necessary to operationalize Enterprise Architecture design and principles. Participants leave inspired and educated, accountable for actions/changes within their organizations.

    The class is designed for Enterprise Architects, Leaders of Enterprise Architecture, Portfolio/Domain Architects, and Business Architects. While the acceptance into the class is selective, the Technology Leadership Development (TLD) program is not a pre-requisite for this class. The TFGI framework will be leveraged to ensure that a common language exists between the TLD program and this class.   
    You must be a DFW*ATW member. As the scholarship recipients will be based in the DFW metro area, the scholarship will ONLY cover class tuition (hotel and transportation not included). DFW*ATW will solicit applications to pick the best to candidates for the scholarships. A TFGI affiliate will help to review applications.
    All applications are due by July 10, 2019. The 2 winners will be chosen by July 15, 2019. Winners will be notified by email.

    7 Essential Qualities of Women Who Lead

    Judy Hoberman, President of Walking on the Glass Floor and author of Selling In A Skirt, will be to engage with us and share her wisdom in the DFW*ATW August Monthly Meeting.

    When you think about leadership, what skills immediately come to mind? Perhaps strategy, negotiations, education, technical knowledge, communication, power and presence? While those are extremely important qualities to have, studies have shown that soft skills are even more important in leadership than the hard skills we have grown accustomed to. While hard skills will get you the job, it's the soft skills that will get you to the top.

    In the engaging and interactive session, Judy will speak about 7 essential leadership qualities and traits that are paramount to success. Be prepared to walk away with useful, proven tips and best practices.
