If you’re responsible for performance management or operational effectiveness within the U.S. Federal Government or Department of Defense, you’ll want to mark March 17, 2010 as the day to be in Washington, DC.
That’s the day my programs colleagues will be holding the 7th annual IBM Cognos Government Forum, a day-long event dedicated to exploring – and presenting – innovative solutions to the most pressing performance challenges in the public sector. IBM is presenting the event in partnership with The Performance Institute, a private, nonpartisan think tank and a leading authority on performance-based management practices for government.
The event includes breakout sesssions with customers and industry experts, keynote presentations, a partner pavillion and hands-on workshops. This year, as you struggle with increased public scrutiny into expenses and higher-than-ever performance expectations, we'll be focusing on helping you use IBM Cognos solutions to overcome two specific challenges:
This year’s speakers include:
Past events have brought you keynote speeches from Tom Ridge, Ted Koppel and Bob Woodward. This year’s keynote speaker is Mike Abrashoff, Commander of the U.S.S. Benfold. You'll hear how through a change in leadership style and culture, Commander Abrashoff transformed the worst-performing ship in the fleet into the Forces' top-performer.
Update - New speakers just added!
This just in - We've added Mark Halperin as a keynote speaker and we're pretty excited about it. Mark is Senior Political Analyst at TIME Magazine and the author of Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime. In a speech entitled "2010 and Beyond," Mark will ask - and provide his answers to - the following questions:
In addition, we've also added Charlie Buhl as a breakout session speaker. Buhl is Assessment Director, Assessment and Workforce Inquiries Division, Office of the Cilivan Human Resources (OCHR), Department of Navy. His session title? Strategic Workforce Dashboard: Reviewing the Human Capital Journey
Here's the abstract:
The Department of the Navy, including the US Marine Corps, employs approximately 192,000 civilian Federal employees worldwide in over 600 separate occupations, and is made up of 22 primary corporate organizations (naval commands). In June, 2007, they recognized a common requirement for a flexible IT application that would allow managers to complete the basic steps in workforce and recruitment planning
This session will examine the Department of Navy's HR Strategic Workforce Dashboard, a Cognos-based workforce planning and HR program application that allows managers at all levels of the organization to receive and use current data for workforce planning, at their desks, using a web browser. Specifically, we’ll explore both the development and current status of this dashboard, and provide an outline of systemic, resistant large-organization issues encountered and expected when working at a worldwide scale.
