IT project management is the process of planning, organizing, and delineating responsibility for the completion of an organization’s specific information technology (IT) goals. There are many failed projects, and many funny cartoons and sketches about them. Project managers play a key role in ensuring project success. Velina Ishida is our guest speaker.
Velina has many years of experience as a project analyst and project manager with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Prior to her roles at the Bank, she worked for the San Francisco Chronicle.

About the Silicon Valley Speaker Series: Demystifying Information Technology
The term IT has evolved over the years – from programming, data processing, automation to today’s IT. IT is massive, and IT activities may appear mysterious to many of us. According to Gartner, a global leading research and advisory company, IT is the common term for the entire spectrum of technologies for information processing, including software, hardware, communications technologies and related services.
Today, we live in a world that is increasingly connected. Technology is intertwined with our daily lives. Technology makes it easier for us to stay in touch, despite the pandemic. Likewise, our personal finance and banking activities rely on technology – everything from how we bank to how we shop. The use of technology will persist beyond the pandemic.
Please join this Silicon Valley Speaker Series to hear the basics of IT and learn what an IT professional does on a day-to-day basis. In this speaker series, we are inviting guest speakers from the banking and/or technology industry to demystify IT – people, process, and technology. This series intends to open the eyes of the curious minds and connect common technology terms to our day-to-day activities.
