About the Presentation
Project managers often find themselves saddled with apparently arbitrary and infeasible cost and schedule constraints before the project even starts. When we have senior managers being mostly required to have PMP, DAWIA etc., how or why does this happen? Does it really happen all that much? A discussion of the interplay of all PMI-related disciplines (projects, portfolios and programs) and some added governance roles (strategy, architecture, security) helps to clarify how these constraints may arise and what PMs can do to set their projects up for success.
In Tysons Corner, entries into parking from Hwy 7, near intersections of Westpark Drive or Greensboro Drive. Photo ID is required. SAIC Drive is a roundabout at the end of ‘Solutions Drive.’ Guest parking is free. Easiest to enter at front of building (large glass atrium) - no badge required.
About the Speaker
Douglas Brown, PMP
Douglas Brown has been a project manager since finding out that he was one, and now holds both PgMP and PMP designations. He is presently the Managing Member of Decision Integration LLC, in which capacity he undertakes short- and long-term contract roles to assist clients with setting up and building out PMO and enterprise architecture capabilities. He is also the CEO of Feature Faceoff, which produces a patented internet application that permits more effective identification and comparison of IT solution alternatives. Prior to his current roles he served as a Federal senior manager at the Securities & Exchange Commission and within the Department of Defense where he instituted PMOs and EA practices.
Before entering Federal service he was a consultant, working with almost every cabinet agency on matters such as privatization, public housing, environmental compliance and cleanup, base closures, and community-level economic analyses before eventually being pulled into the IT world. He assisted in standing up the CIO office when the Department of Homeland Security was first formed, planned the roll-out of the network centers for the NMCI, and instituted portfolio management for a Fortune-100 telecommunications company. He recently completed an engagement to initiate CPIC and EA capabilities at a Defense agency and helped DISA to define the business models for its DOD-wide cloud services.
He holds a Doctorate in Public Policy from the American University and is a graduate of the US Military Academy. Outside of work, he is owned by a boat, and now that the weather is cooling off he can get back to saving up to pay for it again next year.
