Project Management World announces online Blockchain event on June 8
World-changing disruptive technology offers challenges and opportunities for Project Managers
Blockchain aspects that delivery professionals should note will be included. Panelists will provide recommendations for Blockchain project methodologies and tools and references and learning resources that will help project and program managers better manage Blockchain initiatives.
Ample time will be available for questions and discussion by all participants.
"At its core, the Blockchain is a technology that permanently records transactions in a way that cannot be erased but can only be sequentially updated, in essence keeping a never-ending historical trail. This seemingly simple functional description has gargantuan implications. It is making us rethink the old ways of creating transactions, storing data, and moving assets, and that's only the beginning." William Mouygar in The Business of Blockchain, 2016.
