respect the formal scope defined in the statement of work, the govern- ment PM makes sure the contractor’s program leaders understand the full range of program execution and are integrated well into the PMO. Further, the government PM should be leery of accepting the dictum that “it is the contractor’s fault” when things go awry. I reviewed more than a hundred programs when I was in government, and my determination is that there was typically shared cul- pability. The government PM needs to be unbiased in determining what is wrong and what steps should be taken to get back on track. Likewise, a contractor’s program leaders should understand the ulti- mate success outcomes for the pro- gram and be prepared to support changes to the program even if they are not in a contractor’s near-term best interest. The contractor also needs to be as efficient and effective as pos- sible in execution, even if it means sacrificing near-term revenue oppor- tunities. It was quite unsettling to me when contractors would seek to defend their current staffing levels even in the face of low productivity and quality problems. Government PMs are looking for contractor leaders to help fix these issues, not defend their own near-term self-interest. If compa- nies want to build a solid reputation for delivery excellence, they should develop a culture of both competence and efficiency — and recognize that helping the government achieve its objectives is well aligned with com- panies’ long-term growth prospects. ■ August 30, 2014 FCW.COM 29 SPONSORED BY BROUGHT TO YOU BY Big Data in the Cloud This interactive Q&A webcast will discuss the strategies for modernizing legacy systems and ideas for managing the related cultural change.
