By:  Misty Mayes, President/CEO, Management Solutions


Wednesday, September 20, 2017  *  2:00 eastern / 1:00 central / 11:00 pacific


As we all know, changes to the project schedule are practically inevitable and Project Managers are often eager to take on new challenges to satisfy the customer needs.  Before committing to just absorbing these delays, it’s important to fully understand the impact of changes on existing deadlines, deliverables and the entire execution plan.  This session will provide an overview of the recommended practice to fully understand and analyze the impact of schedule changes and the tools to communicate the impact on the project finish date.  The sooner the customer knows the impact of change, the more effective one is at managing and controlling the change and if validated, requesting compensation.

There is no hotter topic in federal contracting than teaming and joint venturing.  While many contractors know the terms, not as many fully understand the requirements necessary to draft enforceable agreements.  In this session, we will cover the right way to use teaming and joint ventures to your advantage.

We will consider the practical implications of negotiating terms of a teaming or JV agreement from the both the prime and subcontractor perspectives. We will also discuss other partnering strategies, including mentor-protégé relationships. Recent developments in this area of law will also be covered.

Understanding your customer and how to do business with them is a key element to success. Unlike commercial work, federal government contracting information is public knowledge and is accessible to everyone – but you have to know where to look. • How much of your product/service does the government consume? • Who in the government buys what you sell? • How and when do they buy it? This webinar provides you with very specific information on how to find the information you need to build a government strategy including a concise checklist for success.
