The Performance Management Summit is comprised of a Master Class and a comprehensive two day summit. The Two-Day Performance Management Summit will feature topical sessions including an Update on the GPRMA, creating better management efficiencies, and Commercial, Federal and Educational case studies. The Master Class on Monday, March 21 is designed for federal managers to better understand performance management and how to use these measurements for operational improvement.
