ACT-IAC Executive Leadership Conference

Leveraging the Perfect Storm for Government Success

When: October 21 - 23, 2007
Where: Williamsburg Conference Center, Colonial Williamsburg, VA

The phrase “perfect storm” refers to a concurrence of events which, if taken individually, would be less disruptive than the result of their chance combination. Though this term is most often used to describe a meteorological event, those involved in the government IT community find ourselves at the vortex of our own perfect storm. Unprecedented change in acquisition, security, the government workforce and breakthrough technologies presents us with mission critical challenges – and extraordinary opportunities.

ELC 2007 Conference Plenary Session & Track planning will incorporate this theme through:

The need for rapid implementation of innovative and creative IT solutions often conflicts with a relatively inflexible acquisition process. Acquisition continues to be buffeted by forces that are often at odds; come join the discussion of the most critical acquisition topics of the day.

Today there is intense debate occurring around all aspects of security. Emerging IT security threats require agencies (and the industry partners that support them) to be one step ahead. How do we maximize our ability to protect critical assets and ensure that citizens remain confident in how the government safeguards their data?

Human Capital:
The government workforce is the human lever on which every other element of the mission depends. Public expectations, technology, and the federal workforce itself are all changing rapidly. What are the implications for government and industry?

Emerging Forces:
Discover the disruptive forces –new technologies and new ways of doing business- that will shape the work of government in the next decade. How will we measure results and stay ahead of the next wave so that government and our citizens may reap the benefits of innovation?
