About the Program
Stakeholder Management — The Soul of Successful Project Management Inside the BeltwayBack by popular demand, Mr. Menna, a Mission Area Director at Noblis and veteran PMIWDC Dinner speaker, will reflect on his 20 years of program and project management support to the General Services Administration (GSA) Network Services telecommunications programs. All of the program and project successes achieved during his tenure have shared a common thread—careful and detailed attention to stakeholder management. Following is a brief synopsis of the work Mr. Menna and Noblis have supported for GSA. Mr. Menna will convey observations and lessons learned during his tenure, particularly in the Project Management Body of Knowledge Communications Knowledge Area and its emphasis on stakeholder management.
GSA provides telecommunications infrastructure services to U.S. government agencies and departments through a variety of contractual vehicles. For more than 25 years, Noblis has supported GSA in its role by providing critical thought leadership and program support throughout three successive generations of telecommunications acquisition programs beginning with FTS2000 in 1986 and culminating with the current Networx program. Noblis has helped GSA and its multitude of stakeholders (agency customers, Congress, the Office of Management and Budget [OMB], Government Accountability Office [GAO], industry, etc.) to define and execute innovative and successful program strategies that have harnessed the technical, operational, and financial complexities of a highly dynamic technology services marketplace. Mr. Menna’s and Noblis’ efforts have brought leading edge communications and networking services to federal agencies at prices better than any in the world.
