CDT’s New Emerging IT Leaders Boot Camp

August 11, 2020—The rapidly changing technology landscape requires IT professionals to stay ahead of the curve—to keep learning, growing, and developing essential leadership skills. To prepare future government IT leaders we created the Emerging IT Leaders Boot Camp, a training program for entry-level IT supervisors and managers in the public sector interested in growing their leadership skills.

We geared the virtual 4-week program to the public sector IT workforce and focused it on developing those critical skills that will prepare our future leaders. It’s an exciting, new opportunity for them to grow and expand.

The Boot Camp targets those serving in IT supervisor I or II classifications (or similar classification levels within cities and counties), recently promoted into new IT managerial positions, or want to refresh or gain leadership skills.

We will conduct training sessions online using the Zoom platform primarily and because of its digital nature, attendees are expected to have a functioning camera and microphone and commit to attending all class sessions.

The delivery model incorporates courses that will be taught by experienced vendor partners and IT executives. Throughout the program, participants will learn and grow through group discussions, shared experiences, and exposure to critical concepts impacting government—such as the state’s budget, IT project and IT procurement processes, innovation for leaders, virtual team management, emotional intelligence, and presentation skills.

The program runs from Sept. 20 through Oct. 12 and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you’re interested in boosting your IT career and developing essential leadership skills, then visit CDT’s open registration process, or learn more about the program at CDT’s workforce development page.

We look forward to seeing you in September.
