On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, Macro Solutions’ Vice President and Solutions Architect, Dan Jenkin spoke at the ACT-IAC Acquisition Excellence 2019 Conference.
Dan’s focus was on Cultural Highlights of Innovative IT Acquisition. His abstract can be read below.
The most competitive commercial businesses in the world are changing the way they acquire digital products and services to continuously improve their own market competitiveness. Tight integration between DevOps models and the acquisition of the tool chain components and the skilled engineers to support those components can be the difference between market success and failure. Federal market dynamics are different, but some Federal leaders understand that it’s possible to get products out faster, cheaper, with better quality and security, more reliably and aligned to what citizens and warfighters need now. This talk provides a high-level review of innovative acquisition practices in commercial and federal organizations and the cultural characteristics that tend to drive success.
