GLASScon II: The Second Iteration of the Government Lean-Agile Software Systems Conference
For Government folks interested in a low cost conference to learn more about Agile and Lean, please consider attending GLASScon, the Government Lean-Agile Software & Systems Conference, 4-5 June 2013 at the Navy League Building (at Courthouse Metro). The cost to attend is $30/day or $45 for both days. We have some great speakers including Luke Hohmann, Richard Cheng, Dr. Ahmed Sidky, Jon Terry, Sanjiv Augustine, Brandon Raines, and Jim York to name just a few. You can find details at http://glasscon.us and follow @GLASScon4gov on Twitter for the latest updates. Be sure to also check out the Innovation Games workshop on 3 June (see the Workshops page).
We encourage you to bring an contracts specialist/officer as well! (See the Open Letter to these folks on the site...)
At this cost, you really won't get a better deal...
I have passed through the survey, however distinct questions related to differences among CP, FP or T&M contract types experiences might enhance the core resulted values of the survey, as different contract's performance, cost and time tolerances, as well as their pro and cons/disadvantages must be taken into account before establishing an EVMS.
During my last 29 years of professional career devoted to program and project management, I had different experiences with programs and their multiple (sub)contracts for some of which the EVMS appliance was not a good idea (e.g. combining a main FP contract with multiple CPIF or CPFF subcontracts). As you know, even US Government Agencies or Departments do not recommend an EVM utilization for different contract types. For example, the last DAU/EVM 'Gold Card' revised on February 2012 mentions the EVM Policy and EVM Contracting Requirements in accordance with ANSI/EIA-748 Standard statements and EVMIG recommendations; however EVMS is discouraged on F-FP and T&M contracts while the integrated baseline review is mandatory for all EVMS contracts.
In a continuing effort to study EVM over a long period of time (7-10 years), please share this survey link with anyone you know that has any experienced with EVM. It is a very short and simple survey. The survey explores the relationship of EVM attributes to common contract formation and administration activities as well as to project success. Project management professionals with direct experience using EVM with external projects under either Fixed Price or Cost-Plus contract arrangements are sought to complete the survey.

Are you a PMI member who lives or works in Maryland, USA?
Great question - How do I improve visually displaying project management information? Any suggestions? http://www.govloop.com/forum/topics/help-improving-my-skills-visual...
How do you make your project inspirational for team members (and yourself)?
Did anyone update their IT Project Manager descriptions or PD? Richard is looking for examples - http://www.govloop.com/forum/topics/it-program-manager

Post from Josh on recently changed PMP eligibility requirements: http://www.govloop.com/profiles/blogs/pmp-eligibility-requirements-...
Are you in a Federal Department or Agency struggling to achieve the improvements within the 25 Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal Information Technology Management released by the Federal CIO last year?
Perhaps you have heard of or are struggling with adopting Agile or Lean practices to try and achieve these. Well, I and a few other fellow Agilists have created the conference for you. The Government Lean/Agile Software & Systems Conference (GLASScon). This conference will be a combination of speakers and discussions to allow us as Feds to figure out ways that we can adopt Agility in our context. The conference is free thanks to the generosity of our sponsors; we are also offering some great quality training on the day after the conference, for developers, PMs, and managers, and senior executives; we've managed to keep this training at an incredibly low cost as we know that many of the Agency budgets have been significantly cut.
Due to the limited conference size, we're asking that if contractors want to come to the conference they have a Government sponsor that is actually attending; a buddy system of sorts. This is because the discussions we want to have are around removing impediments to adoption and this is in Federal hands. Please look over our website, register, and invite others! We'd really like to have a broad mix of developers, senior executives, PMs, contracting officers, and policy developers.
For both the conference and the workshops, we will have PDU reporting forms for pick-up that will assist you in maintaining your credentials.
