03 Leadership with a
Capital “D”

Targeted Audience:
Persons in a
supervisory or management capacity

Speaker:
Gregg D. Richie, PMP, MCTS

Session Description:

Many speakers have
discussed the topic of leadership. Most

delegation is the key to being a good
leader. Others will tell you that without
compassion for others and a vision for the
future, then there is no way you can be a
leader. In the grand scheme of project
management, leadership is

a necessary
skill and most aspects of leadership can be
learned. In this presentation,
the speaker

will demonstrate that the word
"Leadership" is actually an acronym that
depicts the key facets of a good leader.

What attendees will learn

This
interactive presentation guides
students through the fundamentals of being
a good leader.

Students will gain insights into the
“learnable” skills of a good leader.

Session description:

technology alone does not create the
insights to improve their overall success.
They must also build the capability and
commitment to capitalize on the

help participants understand the role of
leadership in making analytics initiatives
and analytical organizations succeed.
Based on focused research and years of
experience helping clients advance
analytical capabilities, the workshop
fac
ilitators will take a holistic view of
analytics across the enterprise, grounding
participants in the essentials for
developing and maintaining a high
performing analytics organization.
Participants will have the opportunity to
hear from both practitioners

and clients on
their actual experiences and success
stories.

1.

The critical success factors for
business analytics, including
leadership, enterprise focus, data and
infrastructure management,
information processes, talent and
cult
ure

enterprise

Guest Speaker


TBD, Apptio user
such as BECU or Microsoft CIO of
Infrastructure

Session Description:

Good companies in
the private sector have been relentlessly
focused on doing more with le
ss with their
IT budgets. The trends in hardware costs
and networking costs have helped. Private
companies have also adopted tools that
enable them to understand and track the
contributors to costs for the IT services
that they provide. Washington State ne
eds
to emulate some of these examples and do
more to understand and manage IT
spending. IT leaders in WA
State

will also
be called upon by the CIO to adopt these
tools and be much more transparent about
where IT dollars are being spent. This need
is being

driven by the desire of the
Executive (Governor’s office) and
Legislators to understand how the $1
billion in annual IT spending contributes
value to the citizens. Washington State
agencies and business owners need to
stretch every dollar to meet their m
ission.
This talk will provide insight into the way
IT spending will be measured and
managed in Washington.

What attendees will l
earn:

Attendees will hear how to use tools to
identify savings opportunities in their IT
budget. Experiences working with IT

financial data will be presented with

discussion.

S
ession D
escription:

IT departments have
long been tasked with building
management systems for every other
department in the enterprise. However,
when it comes to managing their own
organization, too many continue to rely o
n
spreadsheets to justify strategic decisions.
Whether it’s a major application
rationalization project or a goal of shifting
more IT spend on “change the business”
initiatives, the CIOs of tomorrow need to
be able to calculate, allocate, and
communicate I
T costs and value to
business users with a higher degree of
precision. This session will examine the
latest trends from the emerging discipline
of Technology Business Management,
which aims to provide CIOs and other IT
leaders with the necessary transparen
cy to
make smarter decisions about their IT
spend. Staff members will have the

Speaker:

Cate Richards, NA Smarter
Cities Sales Leader, IBM

Session D
escription:

Islands of Citizen
Data Reside in different systems, reducing
service levels, decreasing collaboration
between programs, and increasing costs
and opportunity for abuses to defraud
government programs due to
inefficiencies. Often, Government
agencies seek
ing to provide automated
services to citizens or eliminate fraud,
waste and abuse within government
programs experience significant challenges
because the information about a citizen,
including their name, is stored in multiple
databases


in multiple form
ats


with
multiple identifiers that may not provide a
simple key for matching or resolving. To
facilitate services to citizens and decrease
this "hidden cost of data", agencies seek
ways to get a single, trusted, 360 degree
view of the citizen across th
e various data
sources that must be accessed to provide
reliable information. This session will
discuss the challenges agencies face with

8

islands of citizen data, and new technology
approaches being leveraged to solve them.

What attendees will learn:

1.

The
Impact of Islands of Citizen Data

2.

New technology and approaches to
