     “Lifecycle organization and management is a team sport. You need leaders in the civilian, uniformed military, and contractor communities to integrate their efforts. The only place I'm aware of in the country where these communities come together is at the IDB.  The exchange of information among these communities creates a powerful learning experience and forges strong networks that can be leveraged to solve future challenges.”
