The GEN Tuttle Award
GEN William G. T. Tuttle, Jr. (Ret.) Award
for Business Acumen in Defense and Government
This annual award was established at the Center of Excellence in Logistics & Technology (LOGTECH) by the Institute for Defense and Business (IDB) in Chapel Hill to recognize an exceptional business application in defense and government. The GEN Tuttle Award is presented to an IDB Alum and their direct colleagues for demonstrating the best return on investment to their organization by successfully applying the lessons learned in an IDB education program.
IDB’s education and training courses are developed to provide “shoulder to shoulder” interaction between the military/government, private sector, and academic communities. These courses provide a dynamic and unique educational experience that includes the application of innovative business practices in the relatively challenging environment of the defense enterprise. The nature of IDB programs is to be a true investment that equips and motivates graduates to share the business principles learned in class with their team and apply them for the betterment of their organization.
The GEN Tuttle Award is designed to recognize the hard work and achievement of an IDB Alum and the team of professionals they worked with to achieve remarkable improvement in their organizations to achieve efficiency or effectiveness. The processes and outcomes detailed in the award nomination will be shared to the benefit of current and future IDB participants who can learn from those successes.
