FCW : April 15, 2015
22 April 15, 2015 FCW.COM Management Because of those repeated management gaps, Connolly said, legislators “were careful to explicitly require that pro- gram and project managers are key components of FITA- RA’s specialized IT acquisition cadres.” And those gaps also prompted him and Young to draft legislation that seeks to “institutionalize and strength- en program and project man- agement improvement initia- tives.” Industry’s increasingly agile management and development techniques are adding pressure to inject more such program- matic approaches at federal agencies. The government has implemented its own nascent progressive development methods that Spires, Holgate, Che- nok and Killough agreed will further spur agencies to adapt. GSA’s 18F digital incuba- tor, the Digital Services Play- book and USDS — along with increased budget authority for CIOs under FITARA — will give CIOs more accountabil- ity and a cohesive overview of how their agencies’ IT opera- tions fit together. Those operations, how- ever, are not getting any less complex or easier to manage, which means there probably is no end to efforts to get a handle on them. “Technology evolves rap- idly,” Killough said. “Keeping an emphasis on the outcome is difficult.” And even with the adoption of more programmatic management techniques, wrangling big IT projects “won’t become easier. [But] it will become more effective.” n GITEC GITEC 2015 SUMMIT INNOVATE! DELIVER! SECURE!

PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT Portfolio management covers all of an organization’s projects and programs, prioritized by business objectives. Program management covers interrelated projects that support a particular business objective. Programs are made up of multiple projects, and an agency’s portfolio usually covers multiple programs. Project management covers smaller, more tactically oriented tasks. Projects can be independent of any larger program and simply part of an organization’s portfolio. 0415fcw_016-022.indd 22 3/24/15 1:55 PM
