Why Attend Capability Counts 2016? Reason #1: To Make Connections!

Ahoy, shipmates! Capability Counts 2016 is now just days away! The big event happens on May 10-11 in Annapolis, Maryland, and I can't wait to share this experience with you.

You know, having been to Annapolis many times, I’ve seen first-hand their wonderful spirit and passion for adventure. So it should surprise no one that Annapolis was selected as this year’s gathering place for engineering and software executives and practitioners who are passionate about the adventure of performance innovation, process improvement and building capability.

As I put together my list of reasons to attend Capability Counts 2016, I considered that having a great adventure was a combination of building capability (Reason #5), playing agile games (Reason #4), crowning a capability champion (Reason #3) and being with great organizations (Reason #2). It all comes together in Reason #1.

Drum roll please …

Reason #1: Capability Counts 2016 is where you can make connections.

It’s true that, in the past, every SEPG conference and CMMI Congress gave you the chance to be with like-minded professionals who are just as passionate as you are about process and performance improvement. Capability Counts 2016 offers even more. At Capability Counts 2016, you will ...

Connect (or re-connect) with Washington, DC-area customers and clients

We all want to stay connected with our Washington, DC-area customers, but the reality is that everyone’s busy - and America is a big place! We’re solving problems and flying at a hundred miles an hour. It can be hard to slow down and find time to spend together. Well, Capability Counts 2016 gives us that time. The two-day conference offers myriad opportunities to share with your customers why you are so passionate about organizational process and performance improvement, and for them to share the same with you.

Connect (or re-connect) with business partners

There’s no better place than Capability Counts 2016 to form strategic relationships with compatible companies from all around the world. Someday, an opportunity will arise in which you will be glad you have an international partner you can work with and trust. By forming these relationships at Capability Counts 2016, you’ll form strong, personal relationships with potential partners.

What I love is that Capability Counts 2016 offers these rich networking opportunities in addition to the robust technical program. That means you can learn while connecting with familiar faces and starting new relationships.

To me, spending time with quality people is one of the best adventures life has to offer. I hope you’ll join us in Annapolis, and show us how important making connections is to YOU.


See you at Capability Counts 2016!
