Strategic RFID Workshop
Presenter: Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal
This workshop is designed for senior executives of companies that have
already deployed-or currently seek to deploy-RFID systems. It will focus on
helping companies formulate an RFID strategy that will lead to greater
competitive advantage and shareholder value. As part of the workshop, each
participating end-user company or organization will be entitled to five free
hours of one-on-one follow-up discussions with the presenter, to be
scheduled after the event.
"I listened to your presentation and it was years of lessons learned presented in one hour. I sincerely wish I had seen your presentation four years ago. We learned those things the hard way."
—Adam Berg, Engineering Services Manage, FMC Technologies Inc.
About the Presenter
In 2001, Mark Roberti had the vision to recognize that radio frequency
identification would become an important technology in the 21st century, and
so he launched RFID Journal to provide information that would help
businesses deploy the technology successfully. He speaks with end users,
researchers, vendors and consultants on a regular basis, and has advised
many firms regarding their RFID deployments and strategies.

An Overview of RFID Today
Senior executives will hear the truth about where RFID adoption currently stands, where it is making a difference for companies in specific industries, and how smart businesses have developed strategies to deploy the technology in a way that enhances their business goals.
Taking a Strategic Approach to RFID
Learn the difference between short-term tactical applications of RFID and a long-term strategic approach that can enhance your company's major goals and reduce costs in a variety of areas. The benefits of taking a strategic approach will be explained.
A Step-By-Step Approach to Developing a Strategic RFID Plan
To be successful, companies need to set clear goals for their RFID deployments; map existing business processes; determine where data needs to be collected, as well as how that information will be used; and then select the technology that will achieve the desired goals. The presenter will walk participants through this process.
Working Lunch: A Technology Overview
Learn about the different types of RFID systems, how they work, how they are different, how they map to specific application requirements and how they can be integrated with other technologies, such as 2D bar codes, infrared and GPS, to create an automatic-identification infrastructure. In addition, hear about the software options available, and come away with strategies for integrating RFID data with your back-end systems.
RFID and Change Management
RFID represents a new and potentially threatening way of conducting business, and some people will resist any changes. This session will discuss the common employee reactions that companies face when deploying RFID, as well as how to avoid typical problems. Learn how to build a team that can execute on a strategic RFID plan, and how to convince senior management to fund RFID projects.
You believe RFID can help your company—but what do you do when the event is over and you return to your office? This session will explain some concrete steps you can take to begin working toward developing a strategic RFID plan, and executing on it.
