About the Program:

Removing the Distance: Effective Project Management and Leadership of Virtual Teams

This presentation will provide lessons learned and good business practices from a large systems integration and development effort that involved a large team at multiple locations. Project management aspects of communications, schedule adherence, teamwork, team member roles, responsibilities, and accountability will be discussed. A case study will also be presented that focuses on some areas of difficulty that were overcome in relation to working with disparate, virtual teams.

About the Speaker:

Dean J. Layman, PMP

Dean Layman has provided program management and technical leadership for over 23 years on many software intensive efforts relating primarily to systems development and integration. He has been employed at SAIC since 1990. Over the past 13 years, Mr. Layman has managed programs centering on document imaging, document management, enterprise content management, and records management functionality. In addition to his credentials in systems development and integration, Mr. Layman has extensive experience in various disciplines of operations research, particularly decision analysis, economic analysis, econometrics, and modeling and simulation. He received his PMP certification in 2005.

Since August 2006, Mr. Layman has been the Program Manager for the Imaging and Enterprise Document Repository (I/EDR) program for the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA). SAIC designed and developed an IBM FileNet-based web application that allows users at the local social services districts in the State of New York to have their case files scanned and stored electronically for electronic search and retrieval purposes. The contents of I/EDR (over 100 million images) have been made available to many agencies in the New York State government.

Prior to that effort, Mr. Layman was the manager of the Electronic Land Records On-Line Imagery (ELROI) System program. This effort was performed for the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) for the State of Maryland. SAIC designed and developed an integrated document imaging tool for the recording, scanning, indexing, storing, and retrieval of land record documents. This powerful document imaging technology has been deployed throughout the State of Maryland in its twenty-four (24) circuit court jurisdictions.
