George Mason University will host “Building Government Acumen: Competing for the Future” next spring for mid-level executives poised to make a significant impact on their company.
Held April 11-14, April 28 and May 12, 2016, the 24 CPE credit program, limited to 25 participants, will provide attendees with the leadership skills, expertise and tools they need to succeed in tomorrow’s new government contracting environment. Participants will benefit from practitioner-led discussions featuring senior executives from leading companies in the industry.
The government’s adoption of cloud computing, the emergence of a mobile workforce, the spread of “Big Data” and the continued pressure to reduce costs are converging to create a new era in government contracting — one that is disrupting the industry and challenging established players. “Innovate or die” is the message coming from the government customer. Preparing for this “new reality” is a top priority for companies across the GovCon industry.
Whether in sales, operations, corporate development, program management, marketing or finance, this class provides the tools and strategies required to compete successfully in tomorrow’s market. Participation from companies of all sizes is encouraged, and we anticipate the program will attract tech startups as well as established professional services companies.
Graduates will leave with an understanding of what it will take to successfully compete and what you can do today to get started, a powerful network of established leaders and industry peers, insight into individual leadership strengths and how to leverage them, and experience with applying entrepreneurial “lean start up” approaches and frameworks to growth.
The cost to attend is $4,750.
