Amtower and guest Emory Miller of Robbins-Gioia discuss Program Management and its various applications in the federal market. Starting with a discussion of the changing landscape under the President’s Management Agenda and the need for developing a professional Program Management career track in government to fully support the implementation of the programs the government pursues.
Currently, the execution of many government programs is done poorly. Miller contends that this is partly due to the fact that there is no professional training for or career track for people responsible for carrying programs to fruition.
