July 20-24, 2020

For the sixth consecutive year, Management Concepts was proud to be an Emerald Sponsor of the Federally Employed Women (FEW) National Training Program (NTP), which was the first time the FEW Leadership Summit was virtual.

As in past years, our Two-Day Leadership Course was a resounding success. Limited to a small group, attendees participated in in-depth discussions and collaborative activities related to topics such as “Building Relationships Through Collaboration,” “Cultivating Motivation and Engagement,” “Managing Change,” and “Mentoring.” These 4-hour modules were selected from the Management Concepts Professional Government Supervisor Program, which features over 30 modules that are aligned to the Office of Personnel Management’s Supervisory Training Framework and Senior Executive Service (SES) Executive Core Qualifications (ECQ).

Management Concepts was also asked to present a session on our new acquisition and contracting course “Procurement Innovation – FAR Flexibility” enumerating flexibilities in the Federal Acquisition Regulations and providing practical tools for participants to apply them.
