How do you lead in times of immense change and continuous turnover? What were the lessons learned after the implementation of Healthcare.gov? How do they relate to the challenges states are facing today as they progress toward more modular-based solutions? This session will facilitate a conversation with the OIG who developed a set of 10 best practices following one of the largest and most visible federal IT projects in history. What leadership skills rose to the top? How will these skills help future technology projects? We will also engage Medicaid technology leaders who have leveraged these best practices in their own sphere of influence and uncover real, practical solutions for how states can successfully implement large scale IT projects in the future.
