ACT-IAC Members,

On behalf of the ACT-IAC Enterprise Architecture SIG we would like to invite you to join us at our EA Program Managers (PM) Playbook Workshop on June 5, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon at ICF International, 9300 Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA 22031.

The intent of the EA PM Playbook deliverable is to provide additional guidance that helps EA PMs organize and deliver EA services armed with an understanding of EA program focus, services, organizational culture, and most importantly the EA staff competencies.

As part of the EA PM Playbook development, we would like to hear your ideas and brainstorm some of the hypothesis the EA PM Playbook working group has come up with. Chris Chilbert, Chief Architect, DHS, and Walk Okon, Senior Architect Engineer, DoD, will be on hand to provide their perspectives.

This collaborative workshop is seeking industry and government participation in discussing the following issues:
• Discuss how the focus (i.e., business strategy, project architecture or technology solutions, etc.) of an EA program can influence management of the EA program
• Discuss how EA competencies and skill sets can influence the EA program focus
• Discuss the organization change management aspects of modifying the EA competencies and skill set mix with a goal of maturing the EA program focus

The agenda is as follows:
8:30 AM - Introduction
9:00 AM – Opening Remarks by EA PM Playbook Working Group
9:15 AM – 9:30 AM – Remarks by Mr. Chris Chilbert on the need for an EA PM Playbook
