Y2K was a global project of immense proportions, as organizations literally raced against the clock to prevent their information systems from failing as the rest of the world celebrated the dawn of the new millennium. For the most part, they kept going. This webinar takes a retrospective view of the Y2K project, one of the largest coordinated systems efforts that the world has yet seen; it offers an alternative perspective and far more insight into the management underpinnings of how to manage an effort that was complex, diffuse and world-wide.

He'll explore what we've learned, what we still have to figure out, and what we are perilously close to once again forgetting.
