Gettysburg, Pa. (November 4, 2018) – OPEN MINDS announced its upcoming executive seminar, Making The Right Tech Investments For Your Organization: An OPEN MINDS Executive Seminar On Technology Budgeting & Planning, will take place at The 2019 OPEN MINDS Performance Management Institute. The seminar will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm. The institute will return to the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater Beach, Florida, from February 14-15, 2019.

This executive seminar will be led by OPEN MINDS Senior Associate & Advisory Board Member, Joseph P. Naughton-Travers. Mr. Naughton-Travers will cover the key technology adoption challenges facing executives as they lead their organization on the path to a tech-driven future. The seminar will provide best practice models for:

  • Developing a technology strategy that aligns with your organization’s strategic plan – and prioritizing tech investments
  • Best practices models for technology selection, implementation, and optimization
  • Technology budgeting and estimating technology return-on-investment

“Over the years, there are two critical things I’ve found in my consulting practices with customers regarding their technology purchases,” Says Mr. Naughton-Travers. “First, any plans for what technology to spend on must be driven by organizational strategy. Second, these days, most providers are also wrestling with how to evaluate what technologies they should use for use with consumers. How do select from hundreds of options in the marketplace? What is the clinical and business process for deciding what to use?”

Joseph P. Naughton-Travers has more than 30 years of experience in the health and human service field. In his tenure as a Senior Associate with OPEN MINDS he has served as the lead on dozens of client initiatives, served as the editor of OPEN MINDS publications, and has authored many groundbreaking articles and presentations.
