Wednesday, November 15, 2023
The Electrical Contractors’ Association of City of Chicago (ECA) Research and Education Committee was pleased to have sponsored the program, “Auditing Your Tech Stack.” The morning session was held on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 and facilitated by Denise Devine, Partner and Operations Expert, SteelToe Consulting LLC. The seminar was held at the Hyatt Lodge Conference Center in Oak Brook, IL.
In the presentation, the steps to optimize a firm’s tech stack and enhancement of the team's workflow was covered. The importance of auditing a firm’s existing tech stack using an audit worksheet to identify all apps and tools in use, assess their significance and identify areas of overlap were discussed. The facilitator also explored the creation of a technology committee, involving subject matter experts who understand workflow processes to identify needs, challenges, and areas of improvement. Additionally, Ms. Devine addressed the importance of establishing a budget to ensure long-term affordability, discussed budget considerations with the tech committee and IT, enabling informed tool selection and incentivizing tech stack consolidation. Finally, she highlighted the significance of measuring the tools' impact and evaluating workflow improvements, gathering feedback from team managers to assess the effectiveness of adopted tools, and making necessary adjustments to maximize benefits.
We thank Ms. Devine for her time and expertise with the presentation!
