Information technology is quickly becoming the government’s latest Catch-22. Federal agencies need IT systems to efficiently and effectively run operations and deliver services to the American people. But the more reliant they become on IT, the more vulnerable agencies become to cybersecurity attacks and data breaches.
To maintain IT systems that are both effective and secure, agencies depend on IT leaders with superb technical skills and exceptional management capabilities. The Federal IT Leaders program empowers participants to manage inevitable IT complications and drive vital innovations to strengthen agency operations.
The eight-month program gives participants an opportunity to periodically step away from their day-to-day jobs so they can focus on their long-term professional development. The program meets once every few months for three-day sessions focused on key leadership concepts. Under the guidance of our expert instructors and coaches, participants explore management best practices and practice using their newly developed suite of leadership skills.Application closed
