The Art of the Potomac Forum – Over 30 Years of Education for Government and Industry
Our Agile practice at CC Pace has been partnering with Art Chantker, President of Potomac Forum, LTD. since 2011. Potomac Forum has trained thousands of government and industry professionals throughout the country in a wide variety of information technology, acquisition, financial, and management subjects of importance to our government. It never ceases to amaze me how many people Art knows in the federal government. I’ve read scores of reviews on his workshops, and there are consistent praises for his chosen content, speakers and venues.
Over the years, Art has invited CC Pace back again and again to present on a wide variety of topics around Agile software development and Agile project management along with officials from the Department of Homeland Security, USDA, the VA, Department of Education, NGA, GSA and other Federal agencies.
On January 28th we will be conducting our first Agile workshop at the Willard Hotel for the 2015 Potomac Forum series. The focus will be on Agile and Lean Best Practices, including Scrum, Kanban and scaling Agile for larger projects and programs. Our speakers will talk about the latest Agile and Lean approaches on the horizon and how to effectively contract for Agile services within the Federal government. The government speakers and panelists already confirmed for the 28th include representatives from NGA, GAO and FEDSIM. There is a tentative agenda already posted on the Potomac Forum website, pending some agenda changes once other invited officials are confirmed. If your agency is starting down the path of agility you should attend this workshop. And if you haven’t met Art, you should!
