Topic Summary:

In early 2014, the Vendor Management Office (VMO) within the Department of State Information Management Bureau recognized that better controls needed to be put in place to manage the contractor workforce executing the $500M+ annual Bureau budget. The VMO implemented the Microsoft Project Server 2010 solution (rebranded to iSchedule) and built the first IRM IT project portfolio report for the DOS Chief Information Officer. Recognizing that "true projects" (Development-Modernize-Enhance: DME) only accounted for approximately 14% of the annual budget, the VMO developed the capability to capture the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) activities of the Bureau within the iSchedule solution; providing full visibility of the IT portfolio. Never one to settle, the VMO is now aligning costs captured within iSchedule to Technology Business Management (TBM) principles to not just provide the CIO projects and activities in her portfolio, but also to understand how they align to Services her bureau provides.

 The October Book is :   Whiplash: How to Survive Our Faster Future" by Jeff Howe and Joi Ito (2016)

In WHIPLASH, Joi Ito and Jeff Howe distill that logic into nine organizing principles for navigating and surviving this tumultuous period. From strategically embracing risks rather than mitigating them (or preferring "risk over safety") to drawing inspiration and innovative ideas from your existing networks (or supporting "pull over push"), this dynamic blueprint can help you rethink your approach to all facets of your organization.
