FPM-331: Progressive Concepts in Program Management

4 Day Workshop

This course focuses on systems management within the federal environment and satisfies performance outcomes necessary for the Federal Acquisition Certification for Program and Project Managers (FAC-P/PM) at the Senior Level. Participants will assess how systems development, including requirements, system engineering, test and evaluation, and logistics, fits into the overall Total Life Cycle Systems Management (TLCSM) environment. With the use of real-life examples, in-depth discussions, and analyses of current events, participants will navigate through federal department/agency decision support systems and learn key strategies to evaluate systems development challenges; lead the transition and assessment of strategic goals into executable project/program requirements; gain a comprehensive understanding of the benefits of a Project Management Office (PMO); and use systems engineering, life cycle logistics, and formal plans for managing systems.

Workshop Topics:

  • Managing requirements development
  • Concept selection; technology development
  • Core management skills of project management
  • Communications management and working groups/teams
  • How to evaluate systems development challenges in the federal system environment;

  • Evaluate the benefits of a project/program management office;
  • Evaluating and evolve the development and application of a systems engineering approach to develop IT and non-IT products
  • Evaluate when life cycle logistics approaches are appropriate
  • Formulate an approach using integrated master plan (IMP)/integrated master schedule (IMS) processes
  • Appraise the importance of making informed decisions across the TLCSM
