“No leader achieves, and maintains, the highest levels of personal and professional success without a stellar team”
During this panel discussion, participants will hear tips from executives who have navigated the challenges of maximizing teamwork on SAP projects, which is increasingly important as the cloud, mobility, and HANA are becoming essential to maintain a competitive edge. Attendees will learn how to foster teams to drive project success by:
- Staying calm under pressure
- Identifying strengths, and downplaying the weaknesses, of their teams
- Ensuring success is not a one-time event
Advice at the invite-only event will be delivered by four panelists who have led successful teams:
- ASUG Leadership 2.0 team captain and four-time Olympic champion, author, and TV commentator Lisa Leslie-Lockwood, who was the first women’s basketball player to win all three Most Valuable Player awards – for the WNBA regular season, All-Star Game, and playoffs – in the same season
- Paul Fipps, Vice Chairman of the ASUG Board of Directors, and CIO and Corporate Vice President of Business Services, The Charmer Sunbelt Group, an early adopter of SAP HANA
- Business turnaround expert and ASUG CEO Bridgette Chambers
- Jason Rose, VP of solution marketing for business intelligence at SAP, who leads the go-to-market activities for SAP BusinessObjects
"No leader achieves, and maintains, the highest levels of personal and professional success without a stellar team," Chambers said. "This year's Leadership 2.0 panelists will share their experiences and discuss how to identify, cultivate, and leverage the distinct value that each team member brings to the table, and how to integrate and synergize the group to form a cohesive team that can succeed and sustain over time."
