P3 Leadership Workshop, Partnership Leadership: A Focus on Culture and Trust Virginia Tech Research Center - Arlington, 900 North Glebe Road, Arlington, VA 22203, United States
Jun 10 9:00 am EDT Partnership Leadership: A Focus on Culture and Trust P3 Leadership Workshop June 10, 2015 Virginia Tech Research Center 900 N Glebe Rd, Arlington, Virginia Virginia Tech’s School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) is pleased to announce the second of a three-part series exploring P3 Leadership on March 26, 2015, at the Virginia Tech Research Center in Arlington, VA. There is no question P3s are emerging as a public policy vehicle of choice for public services and facilities across the Commonwealth. The purpose of P3s as a policy vehicle and as a business strategy is to bring different sectors together as well as to leverage individual capabilities and strengths. An outside observer may note several significant differences between partners – in language used to describe the deal, in financial metrics and expectations, in understanding the project and its impact on community or even in the definition of transparency. Leadership is faced daily with instances of cultural conflicts, but may not be armed with the tools to diffuse it. In this session, participants and moderators will use case studies to determine how partners in projects bring distinct “ways of knowing” P3s to the table. Participants will be provided an analytic tool to discover the different practical experiences, languages, procedures and relationships that provide each partner a unique culture. The date for the third P3 Leadership conference is Wednesday, June 10, 2015. Details to follow. Registration Fee: $350 by March 6th; $375 thereafter includes light breakfast, lunch, and parking Registration deadline: March 16th Group Discount: 10% off for organizations that have 4 or more participants This conference can be used for continuing education units (CEU). Participants may be eligible to receive up to five (5) credits as most professional associations award one (1) credit per hour of instruction.
