Fusion 06: The 4th Annual Maine Digital Government Summit
4th Annual Maine Digital Government Summit Theme: Security & Privacy October 3, 2006 Augusta Civic Center "The soaring use of the Internet by citizens, businesses, and governments has expanded service and information opportunities for everyone. Accompanying the growing use of electronic services, however, are new risks associated with the Internet and important responsibilities for service providers – including government. Join us to learn more about these public policy issues and to participate in discussions about how we in government can improve our services while providing the protections for which we are responsible." Dick Thompson, CIO.
SUMMIT TOPICS WILL INCLUDE
"Apogee" - Taking Teams to the Top! Astronaut Rick Searfoss, Colonel, USAF Retired
Successful human space missions demand that hundreds of different teams perform flawlessly and consistently. A Space Shuttle crew must act in unity as one of the most finely honed teams possible, with billions of dollars and their own lives riding on their performance. They also need to interact with and motivate the members of a huge variety of other specialized teams to truly prepare for and carry out a mission. The dynamic and difficult endeavors of human space flight demand the absolute best of its teams, and the lessons apply to all of us. Rick Searfoss, with hundreds of experiences in every team role in fighter jet squadrons, test flying teams, space flight crews, and especially in serving as the commander of what is considered to be the most complex Space Shuttle mission ever, shares his teamwork legacy in this fascinating keynote address.
