​Agency personnel must navigate an ocean of vendor solutions, government mandates, and bureaucratic obstacles in their quest to support their agency mission and deliver services to citizens, business users, and warfighters.

To succeed, we must focus not only on the technologies implemented but on how the leaders in our organizations are implementing programs, engaging stakeholders, and empowering teams to drive the outcomes desired.
