Sessions to Examine Best Practices and Risk Management for Project Managers
FOSE 2013, in partnership with Project Management Institute (PMI), will offer a new track for attendees focused on educating project managers about reducing risks and effectively managing projects in the new budget environment. FOSE 2013 will take place May 14-16 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
"PMI, our partner in providing this new track, recently conducted a study that found organizations risk, on average, $135 million for every billion dollars they spend," said Mike Eason, Vice President, Public Sector Events, 1105 Media, Inc. "With budgets tighter than ever, this track is a perfect opportunity for government project managers to seek new insights on decreasing risks while saving funds."
The Project Management track at FOSE 2013 will feature a keynote, workshop and seven sessions dedicated to improving efficiencies and skills, managing risks, agile development and metrics for project managers. Attendees will learn best practices, organizational change models and lean-agile techniques as they hear from agency and industry experts, including:
-- Jan Frye, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Acquisition and Logistics, Department of Veterans Affairs
