Free Community Technology Forum Focused on How to Develop

The event is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m., May 17th at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.

Harrisburg, PA, May 08, 2012 - The public is invited to the Government Technology Institute's May 2012 Community Technology Forum: “Developing an Enterprise Portfolio Project Management Office with Clarity Technology” featuring Ron Huston President of ClearPoint and Sponsored by CA Technologies. The event is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m., May 17th at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.

Recognized by Computer World Inc. in 2009 as one of the top Information Technology leaders in the world, Mr. Huston brings over 35 years of experience in managing complex diverse organizations, requiring an entrepreneurial spirit, change agent, team builder, facilitator, strategist, and communicator in the private and public sectors.

This event is ideal for CIOs, consultants, developers, managers, analysts, enterprise architects and information technology professionals, educators, faculty, staff and students in project management, and computer or information sciences.

There is no charge for the event but seating is limited. RSVP at www.HarrisburgU.edu/RSVP

Mr. Huston recently retired from the State of Colorado where he was appointed by Governor Ritter in 2007 as the State of Colorado’s Chief Enterprise Architect. As the Enterprise Architect Ron published the Colorado Consolidation Plan, which was the cornerstone to enact legislation creating the Governor’s Office of Information Technology. Today he is president of ClearPoint where he provides executive support for a variety of organizations.

In the past six months Mr. Huston has:

* Initiated planning of the modernization of the Wyoming Health Insurance Eligibility and Enrollment System Master Plan.

* Provided mentoring/training to C-level executives at State, Federal agencies and corporate entities.

* Conducted an examination of the Information Technology organization for the Regional Transportation District in Denver. This work effort resulted in a new organizational alignment of RTD IT implementing new roles for service delivery. These new roles are dramatically changing the culture as a new service delivery model is implemented for supporting the business/divisions.

* Initiated the creation of a Portfolio Project Management Office for RTD. An analysis was completed of how work requests are derived and managed in the RTD IT division. Ron is currently heading a team that is creating work processes, implementing a comprehensive management tool and working with RTD executive leadership to change RTD’s culture for IT services.
