Several renowned program management consultants from Robbins-Gioia, LLC, will present ideas on boosting program performance and optimization at the Government Performance Summit, June 10-12, Crystal City Hilton, Crystal City, Va. The annual summit attracts hundreds of federal managers who collectively share knowledge and insights on government program performance management practices and policies.

At the conference, three of Robbins-Gioia’s top consultants are scheduled to present program improvement concepts; a fourth consultant, a leader in the field of strategy, will conduct a strategic planning workshop designed to help government leaders improve mission-oriented outcomes.

The three Robbins-Gioia speakers include:

Keith Kerr, Robbins Gioia practice and solution development leader, will speak on the value optimization of existing programs—specifically, ways to cut inefficiencies from legacy programs to create investments for newer capabilities in other areas.

Doreen Evans, managing director of the business and requirements analysis practice for Robbins Gioia, will address an architectural approach to a concept of operations (ConOps). Using a case study about a precision lunar landing system, Evans will demonstrate the value of this approach in gathering, visualizing, and confirming requirements.

Doug Jackson, the government lead for the business and requirements analysis practice, will present the benefit of an architectural approach to IV&V activities to increase audit efficiency and inform decisions for corrective actions based on visual models. He will also provide a case study illustrating how these techniques helped a large organization avoid possible security problems associated with what seemed to be a "minor" enhancement to an existing system.

Additionally, Alan Knapp, a Robbins Gioia executive consultant, will facilitate a strategic planning workshop, helping leaders improve competencies critical for aligning organizational strategic goals to achieve results.

The 2013 Government Performance Summit, “Science of Data: Unlocking Information for Improved Insight,” focuses on how agencies deal with requirements to link their performance with their budgets. Other speakers include Kevin Donahue, Performance Improvement Council (PIC) executive director; Bethany Blakey, the PIC’s lead on the new Performance Analyst Job Series and Competencies; Douglas Glenn, deputy chief financial officer, Department of Interior; Robert Behn, Harvard University; and panelists John Kamansky, IBM Center for Government; Kathy Newcomer, George Washington School of Government; and Jon Desenberg, The Performance Institute.
