Presented by: Mark Mosher
Information Services Manager
San Bernardino County

PDU Category: 2 PDUs Leadership

Presentation Abstract:

Under optimal working conditions projects require people who often do not know each other to come together and work together under the pressure of demanding project constraints. Add in the complexity of an ethical crisis at the highest levels of the organization and successful team management can become daunting at best.

Mark Mosher successfully managed the Information Services division of the San Bernardino County Assessor through the Bill Postmus scandal. The investigation and ethical upheaval made it very difficult to keep staff on tasks and continue efficient operation in the public interest. The issues surrounding the office made it very difficult to manage the day to day activities.

Learn how to manage teams effectively under extreme workplace conditions from this veteran executive.
