SAM Skills Workshop
The SAM Skills workshop is a free to attend, joint event brought to you by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT and The ITAM Review.
Run over an afternoon, starting over an informal lunch, we invite you to join us for an independent SAM Skills workshop that will discuss the very latest skills requirements for SAM professionals and network with peers.
You’ll learn from The ITAM Review team on how to assess the maturity of your SAM organization, how the SAM certifications from BCS address the complexity of this key business practice and participate in SAM roundtable workshops where you’ll be able to put your SAM skills to the test and learn from peers.
Key topics include
- Business skills and building the SAM business case and reputation of the SAM department
- Licensing skills and learning the key fundamentals for strategic vendors
- Audit defense skills and preparing your organization for audit requests
