Managed Care

After billions of dollars of government investment in information technology, one of the areas in which automation has yet to make a significant impact is in the business of management. Government executives, of course, routinely use e-mail, software for creating presentations and a handful of other general-purpose tools, but few solutions are available to help them analyze and track the performance of their organizations or plan and execute strategy.

That is starting to change. The Federal Computer Week special report that follows explores three of the hotter trends in management circles. Each story addresses a particular slice of management responsibility. In the first story, learn how senior managers can use the new crop of portfolio management solutions to get an end-to-end view of their organization's IT investments. In the second story, see why business process management is creating a buzz among departmental managers who want to get beyond the marginal improvements of previous automation projects. In the final story, find out if earned value management, a method for managing IT development projects, is right for you.
