St. John's Chapter News

St John 's Eng

It was a busy Winter and Spring for the FMI St. John's Chapter. Its well-attended session in February featured a provincial update from Terry Paddon, the Auditor General of Newfoundland and Labrador. A half-day session, "PSAB Update", followed in March with Michael Puskaric and Dave Warren from the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) in Toronto.

On May 24th, the Chapter welcomed Dale Schattenkirk, a Director with KPMG's Strategy and Operations practice in Toronto. His presentation centered on understanding the short history of "Lean in the Public Sector" versus its lengthy run in private enterprise. He also delved into the misconceptions, paradigms, and stigmas attached to full Lean implementation.

Rounding out the year's program, FMI St. John's presented "Becoming a Digital Organization, Upping Your Digital DNA" on June 28th. A journey through the digital evolution, Chad Griffin, Eastern Canadian Leader for Deloitte Digital, provided thought-provoking insight into how digital your organization is today, how digital it needs to become, and the strategies to get there. This session was followed by a Networking Wine and Cheese to thank all Chapter members for their continued support. 

The St. John's Chapter Board is presently planning the 2017-2018 program and will endeavour to carry-on the Chapter's success with new and exciting topics and presenters.
