PDM Class of 2011ARLINGTON, Virginia, August 28, 2010 – Twenty managers from the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) graduated from the one-month long residential Program for Developing Managers (PDM), run by UMT. This was the PDM Class of 2010. PDM's goal is to provide opportunities for high-potential women to develop management skills and knowledge in order to assume greater managerial responsibility in DCMA. For one month, the 20 participants lived and studied together at the Georgetown Conference Center on the campus of Georgetown University. UMT faculty and consultants provided workshops on leadership, strategic visioning, organizational behavior, project management, business basics, risk management and other subjects that belong in the high-performing executive's toolbox. The participants, who were brought to Washington from different states, as well as Germany, met with senior level DCMA managers at HQ, and also toured the Pentagon and Capitol Hill. They also met with senior DCMA leaders in a number of panels held on site. “This is the second year we've run this program,” said UMT President, Dr. Yanping Chen. “During both offerings, the participants bonded together tightly and committed themselves to work together in the future to promote their career goals.” “They are a great group,” proclaimed UMT program facilitator, Ann Wang, who worked on-site with the participants over the full four weeks. “They were eager to learn and were able to convert their new insights into practical action very quickly. Their ability to develop strategic visions for their Agency and departments was amazing.” UMT looks forward to working next year with the PDM class of 2011.
