Cover Oregon: What Would You Do?

Join us as we give our examination of the Cover Oregon project in a unique reverse roundtable format to the Portland OR FENG Chapter.  In this presentation the project will be replayed and the audience will be given between five and ten minutes to discuss each point and come to a conclusion on what they would have done differently to change the outcome of the project. By the end you will not only have a good understanding of the key failure points in the project, but will also be able to use this failure to make you a better leader and project manager.


Nothing makes your day worse than a CNN News crew on your front step when you wake up. That is what happened with Cover Oregon. History shows it was a massive failure, but what would you have done differently? Explore seven critical decision points in the project and discuss in a round table format how you would have done it differently.

The key areas will be:

  1. At the initiation of the project and the controls and actions needed for success.
  2. Initial scoping decisions.
  3. Mid-project Change Order costing.
  4. Mid-project Change Order deliverables.
  5. System Integrator selection.
  6. Project Audit reporting.
  7. Internal process and procedure conflicts.
