Olde Stone Consulting working with DoD Section 809 Panel

John Driessnack, Olde Stone Consulting LLC, in collaboration with Project Management Institute (PMI), briefed Team 5 of the Section 809 Panel on use of Portfolio Management and other ANSI standard best practices.   The Panel members were very interested in the concepts and asked for further options on how to implement a robust portfolio management approach for DoD Acquisition.   

The presentations made on 23 Feb and 23 Mar were partly based on John Driessnack's PMI white papers published in Mar 2015 and Feb 2017 on how the Federal Government would benefit from using PMI's ANSI standards for Portfolio, Program, and Project Management.   The white papers can be downloaded at https://www.pmi.org/business-solutions/white-papers
