The Washington Chapter Mini-PDI
[formerly our Spring Symposium]


March 25, 2003


As usual, this event will provide a chance to engage in a dialogue with members of the Financial Community, as well as defense industry and media leaders.

This Mini-PDI will be focused on Balancing Transformation.  The presenters will focus on the following:

  • The main focus is on the new initiatives in government and how critical it is to continue doing business, while changing the way it will be done in the future.
  • FMMP - How do you keep moving forward with new and legacy systems when everything will change in FY2004.
  • Homeland Defense - As the 22 agencies are merged together how do the agencies continue to function.  If they were a piece of an existing organization what is the transition strategy for the financial, hr, and payroll systems.
  • Industry - How does industry cope with transformation problems with pressures of the street and the bottom line.
  • What are the implications on cost and time having various efforts in different directions going on simultaneously?
  • Where are the critical stages on the timeline to show successes and how long is to long before you reach a declining benefit.
