Presentation 1 of 2: Cross-Agency Collaboration to Ensure Mission Success

Abstract: The value of collaborating with program and project managers (P/PMs) from across the federal government to share best practices and lessons learned is immeasurable and has become a critically important tool in the toolbox. Many federal P/PMs continue to work in either a hybrid or completely remote work environment. Having the capability to contact a federal peer P/PM for resources, guidance, and wisdom that—for whatever reason—we cannot obtain from our leadership chain is undeniably valuable.

During this session we will discuss collaboration thoughts, ideas, and resources to better position you to achieve mission success.

Presentation 2 of 2: Risk Management & Resilience – Identifying and Monitoring Low Probability/High Impact Risks

Abstract: As P/PMs we have been taught to identify and track High Probability/High Impact risks, which is absolutely the correct thing to do. However, many of us have been excluding similarly impactful risks from regular review simply due to an estimated low probability of occurrence. What if the probability estimate is incorrect? What if, as improbable as it was, the impact of such a risk becomes a reality? What is your get-well plan? Look for another job?

In this session we will discuss the importance and practical application of monitoring all risks, not just those considered High Probability and High Impact.
