M Corp is an anchor sponsor of Public Sector Partners’ Project Delivery Summit 2014, an all-day conference to connect with and educate state employees who oversee and participate in state information technology projects.
The Executive Sponsorship track will address “how everyone can row together for success,” says M Corp Chief Operations Officer Deanne Wertin.
Several hundred people – including many state officials and employees – will attend the conference June 5 at the Sheraton Grand in downtown Sacramento.
M Corp, which has completed more than 20 large state IT projects, is co-sponsoring the Executive Sponsorship track, a two-meeting session that will discuss the challenges of major projects and the essential qualities to make them a success.
The Executive Sponsorship track will address “how everyone can row together for success,” says M Corp Chief Operations Officer Deanne Wertin. “We want California projects to be successful. This is a great way to educate and share our experiences.”
M Corp Chief Executive Officer Alex Castro, one of the company’s three founding partners, will lead a panel of experts who will share their experiences on actual projects and the challenges they faced and how effective leadership dramatically affected the outcome.
Also as part of the panel discussion, oversight executives will detail how a project is measured and what issues they look for in the delivery process.
M Corp has completed numerous high-profile projects, including efforts for the California Public Employees’ Retirement Systems (CalPERS) and the Employment Development Department. The company is currently partnering on the legacy system services work for the massive Financial Information System for California project, often referred to as FI$Cal. M Corp is also sponsoring the summit’s lunch keynote speaker Gopal Kapur, founder of the Center for Project Management. Kapur is an expert on business and project management.
The Project Delivery Summit will educate, foster collaboration and provide network opportunities for state officials and employees as well as private-sector contractors for the state. The end result is to deliver successful IT projects, says Public Sector Partners Chief Executive Officer Russ Hicks.
