Planning for Disaster with Roger Krasusky

When disaster strikes, the National Guard is among the first to respond to protect people and infrastructure by conducting specific missions leading to recovery.  It is the responsibility of the Intelligence Operations Manager (aka Project Manager) to ensure these missions are fully planned, executed and monitored in coordination with local authorities and support agencies.  Planning for these missions successfully from start to finish is a project critical to the safety and stabilization of all involved.
Participants will benefit from real-world lessons learned on the following topics:

  • Alignment of stakeholder's expectations with the project's purpose
  • How strategy & tactics set a path for success to gain stakeholder approval by outlining how the project goals will be accomplished
  • The importance of project integration and deliberate execution
  • Why continuous monitoring and control reduce project risk

Creating High Performance Virtual Teams with Rick Brenner

Many people experience virtual teams as awkward, slow, and sometimes frustrating. The problem is that we lead, manage, and support virtual teams in ways that are too much like the way we lead, manage, and support co-located teams. In this program, Rick Brenner shows you how to change your approach to leading, managing, and supporting virtual teams to achieve high performance using Simons' Four Spans model of high performance. (

Participants learn to appreciate the true challenges of operating virtual teams. Learning objectives include:

  • Why virtual teams face more complex operating environments than do co-located teams
  • Appreciate the budgetary/schedule consequences of merely adequate performance in virtual teams
  • Understand the need for a basic realignment of expectations and operational practices with respect to calendars and wall-clock time
  • Learn how we can increase effectiveness by treating as a project the deployment and maintenance of a team's communications
  • How to run a virtual meeting effectively
  • Understand the subtleties of remote facilitation
  • Understand the elements of Simons' Four Spans model of high performance
