The days when Customer Service, IT, Human Resources, Engineering, Operations and Construction could operate in silos is drawing to close. Smart Grid implementation is a key reason for this change. While specialised knowledge will be necessary in each of these disciplines, knowledge of the big picture and the ability to work in ways that cut across the organisation will be an absolute requirement in the future.
This master class covers aspects of the Smart Grid that touch all departments in the utility. It is suitable for participants from any of these disciplines.
