In 2020 and 2021, CAD managers have been tested as never before as the world changed seemingly overnight and as we now navigate the changes back to “normal.” This award-winning panel is back to discuss these timely topics and more. Learn from the experiences of this panel of diverse CAD managers who are widely respected as leaders in their field. Hear their unique perspectives and solutions to challenges faced by CAD managers from organizations of all sizes and backgrounds. We will discuss topics related to working remotely and the challenges of being a CAD manager during a pandemic. If you’re burnt out on hearing about COVID, we’ll also cover several other important CAD management topics, including CAD standards, keeping up with rapidly changing technology, managing users, communicating with management, budgeting, and more. Join us for a panel discussion that has become an anticipated Autodesk University tradition. Take this opportunity to learn from four CAD managers who have been there and done that.
