March Dinner Meeting Co-Hosted with the NYS Forum - Intelligent Transportation & Mobility

March Dinner Meeting Co-Hosted with the NYS Forum - Intelligent Transportation & Mobility

Intelligent Transportation & Mobility....WE are on the cusp of an evolution -- What will your role be?

The rapidly advancing world of connected and autonomous vehicles is causing a major shift in how we look at transportation. How do we prepare for this new era? Some call it the most disruptive technology since the industrial revolution. It will have the potential to change the way society, including the full range of goods and services move from place to place. It will affect how we commute, where we might live and how we do our jobs. Many businesses will have a major shift in how they operate. Government will need to be proactive and guide this transition. Who better to help manage a change of this magnitude than to bring the skills of project managers to all the various aspects of change? Without processes, procedures, and a methodized approach, do we become reactionary and create an inability to adapt and put businesses in jeopardy of failing or at least unable to deliver? Government has many roles in this new era and most importantly they must be able to step up and deliver on its role of governing, providing laws and guidelines to ensure public safety and equal access to opportunities. We are entering an exciting time in our history and the skills you possess can help make this transition successful.
