Thursday December 10th, 3:00pm EST. 

Strategies for Industry Success in the New Normal is an opportunity for you to reflect on challenges, discuss new strategies, and learn from the experiences of fellow industry members and academic professional communication specialists as we adapt to online, hybrid or physically constrained new working environments.

Our first Fireside Chat focused on our educator members, but industry professionals are facing the same challenges to their traditional working environment. This forum provides an important opportunity for dialogue between these communities, and a space to share tools and procedures that work in both environments. 

We encourage educators to attend, listen and learn from industry professionals, because a deeper understanding of what’s going on in industry today can help us better prepare students for their professional tomorrow. 

Please take a break from your busy schedule to join us for this informal chat on Thursday December 10th, 3:00pm EST

This ProComm Fireside Chat will be facilitated by Bob Lyons, Jr. (Board member and Technical and Management Consultant) and Nancy Barr (Board member and Engineering Communication faculty). We would value learning about strategies that you have found successful as you have adapted to your unique working situation. Please email a summary of your successful strategies or communication and collaboration issues to Sean Moseley at moseley@rose-hulman.eduby December 3rd, so we can collect and organize your great ideas prior to the chat. Specific areas of interest are:

  • Alternatives to in-person collaborations and solutions to their shortcomings
  • Methods for asynchronous discussions that affect long term projects’ success
  • Methods for maintaining configuration control of in-process work products
  • Logistics of facilitating group project work, meetings, and interactive presentations
  • Ideas for non-standard or unusual approaches to increase work product productivity 

RSVP not required, but the event is intended for PCS members only.
