Presentation 1 of 2: Change Management – The Early Bird Gets The Worm
Abstract: Project managers need to think about change management the same way they think about the theory of constraints. We will discuss best practices and lessons learned to help accelerate early adoption and acceptance of new systems and processes. In addition to managing cost, schedule and scope, PMs need to ensure a meaningful change management plan and approach are in place. This effort NEEDS to start at the same time as project initiation. A “perfect” project will fail to meet intended outcomes if there is an ineffective change management plan, approach and culture in place.

Presentation 2 of 2: Federal Project Managers – A Medley Of Topics To Discuss
Abstract: We as federal PMs typically have similar questions about our careers, and would like to hear and learn from others in similar situations. In this session we will discuss, collectively, topics such as: what is the best certification to get? Is there a typical career path? How many projects should I be managing? Where can I go for guidance? Is there a difference being a PM in a civilian agency as compared to DoD?
