The George Washington University Division of Information Technology held its inaugural Project Management Symposium Sept. 21. More than 100 people from 16 east coast colleges and universities attended the program.
Events included a keynote panel moderated by Ed Martin, deputy chief information officer at GW, and featuring David Steinour, chief information officer at GW, Dave Swartz, vice president and chief information officer at American University; ; and Judd Nicholson, interim vice president and chief information officer at Georgetown University. Denis Cioffi, senior adviser to the dean at the GW School of Business, delivered the closing session’s keynote address on project management and leadership.
“We’re always talking about how to share knowledge about project management capabilities at other institutions,” said Christina Griffin, director of the Project and Portfolio Management Office within the Division of Information Technology. “This was a great way to bring people together from different areas, to share ideas on what works well and how to improve and to get people talking so hopefully they can carry that forward and keep developing ideas into the future.”
