Applied Knowledge

Prior to the program, each participant submits a problem statement outlining a life cycle management challenge that they face in their job. These statements are distilled into five to seven common topics, which are assigned to working groups comprised of participants with similar challenges. The groups meet during the week to explore solutions, exchange ideas, and apply lessons learned from the day’s sessions. On the final day participants brief a professor and a senior military and/or private sector leader on their proposed solutions.
