Agenda and Cost:
  • 11:30 am: Networking begins
  • 12:00 – 1:00 pm: Program
  • Keynote Speaker: Carol Vernon

The Seminar demonstrates the value proposition of Strategic Thinking and Strategic Messaging: This presentation covers the Department of Labor's policy, process, requirements, and resources for four major components of IT baseline management:

  • Establishing,
  • Managing,
  • Reporting on, and
  • Changing IT baselines.
  • Common problems with baselines are discussed, along with strategies for preventing those problems. The following resources are reviewed:
    • “Requirements for Establishing a Baseline,”
    • “The IT Cost Estimation Checklist,” and
    • “The Rebaseline Tracker.”
    • The presentation also addresses modifying current IT governance processes to incorporate IT baseline management oversight and re-allocating capital planning resources to “do more with less.” By focusing more resources on establishing robust, comprehensive, accurate baselines, Federal IT capital planners and investment managers can avoid future problems resulting from ineffective baselines.
