Subject:  -- Ensuring Trust in the Acquisition Process through People, Teams, and Tools-- Knowledge Management Track NCMA World Congress 2008 

Each year, the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) sponsors a World Congress bringing together as many of the 20,000 worldwide members as possible.  Through Acquisition Solutions, I host the KM track which this year is focused on Ensuring Trust in the Acquisition Process through People, Teams, and Tools.

Federal organizations and private sector companies involved in the business of acquiring and providing systems, products and services plan, execute, and deliver to their acquisition missions through a careful balance between people, teams, tools and processes.  Their stakeholders, taxpayers or shareholders, trust that this is being accomplished in the most efficient and effective way possible.  The ability to deliver to this mission as a high performing, knowledge enabled acquisition organization is a reasonable expectation.  

The attendees will be interested in how Knowledge Management enables your ability to capture, transfer, adapt, and reuse what you know about what you do to achieve high levels of success, delivering value to your customers.  This track will examine effective knowledge leadership and knowledge management practices from both public and private sector organizations that help these organizations meet the expectations of their stakeholders delivering the value that is expected.

I am writing to you to request your participation in the KM track at the 2008 conference.   There are five slots available. 

The 2008 NCMA World Congress will be in Cincinnati, Ohio from April 13-April 16, 2008 at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati.  Please agree to share your insight and experience.   Please submit your abstract directly to me by 29 Nov.   I will get it into the system.    

Your insight and experience will add much to helping both federal and private sector organizations leverage more effective practices in delivering high performance that stakeholders expect and trust will be provided.  The goal is for both the senior leaders and the workforce members that attend this conference to begin to think differently about KM planning and implementation and take something back with them that can make an immediate difference for them and their organizations.  Over the past several years, the KM track has received some of the highest feedback scores that can be given. 


As always, it will be my pleasure to host a dinner for the speakers during the world congress.


Please call me if I can answer any questions.

Best regards
