Five generations of Applied Management Professionals (AMPs) gathered at the National Press Club last week to celebrate the 2013 M Powered Strategies (MPS) graduating class. The AMP Program, one of a suite of Professional Development Programs offered by M Powered Strategies, offers graduate students internship opportunities in federal government consulting within the framework of MPS’ consulting methodology, performance standards, and leadership.
M Powered Strategies staff and clients, including the AMPs’ partners at ActioNet and executives from the Department of Energy, who have been longtime supporters of the AMP Program, toasted the milestone. The AMPs presented an overview of the work they did this summer with ActioNet for the Office of the Chief Information Officer at DOE: the creation of a toolbox of standardized protocols and procedures to streamline the work of the department’s IT Service Desk.
This is the sixth group to graduate with MPS and join the diverse and active AMP alumni network. Team Lead Jenny Weng, who was in the inaugural class of AMPs in 2009, had high praise for this year’s class, “They came in as graduate students and are now bona fide professionals. They have achieved a lot this summer, and that is a testament to the AMP Program, as well as to their determination to make a positive change in the government.”
MPS President Kendall Lott also reflected on the accomplishments of the AMPs, and posed a question, “There are moments in life that define us and set into action outcomes that inherently change each of us. This is a moment tonight, this summer, this group. I ask you tonight to consider, what is your moment?”
At M Powered Strategies we celebrate the moment and look forward to many more. Congratulations to the 2013 AMPS, Brigid Cafferty, David Noel, Regan Wedenoja, and Thomas Youmans!
