Description: As Organizations place more and more "key terrain" in the cyber domain, the role of the program manager changes. Scrum software development, virtual teams, open source business models, and data as a product or service have significant impacts on program management. Professor Schwarts will discuss how the role of the program manager is being impacted by these monumental shifts.
