Serving as the EA Conference’s opening keynote, Mr. Wennergren is the principal deputy to the DoD Deputy Chief Management Officer and champions the Department’s efforts to better synchronize, integrate, coordinate and improve DoD business operations. His efforts focus on achieving greater effectiveness, increased efficiency and improved performance in the DoD’s enterprise policies, processes and systems.
