DAU Recognized with Excellence in Learning Award

Bill Kobren

Am pleased to share with members of our life cycle logistics community that the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) was recently selected as winner of the 2016 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Learning Award (Silver Excellence Award) for Best Strategy for Corporate University Learning Strategy. DAU’s entry “Shaping the Future” was recognized for implementation and design of DAU’s Acquisition Learning Model (ALM), which consists of three integrated and complementary types of learning: foundational learning, workflow learning and performance learning. The ALM directly supports the professional development and on-the-job success of the more than 158,000 military and civilian members of the Defense Acquisition Workforce.

 

According to the announcement on the DAU website, “entries were evaluated by an international panel of independent industry experts and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts. Nominees were judged on the design of the program, whether the program fit the organization's needs, functionality, usability, innovation and overall measureable benefits. DAU has previously received two awards from the prestigious group, first in 2003 with the Excellence in e-Learning Best Practices category and again in 2014 with Silver Excellence Award for Best Learning Measurement Approach. This year's award recognizes the value in the DAU Acquisition Learning Model, and its ability to ensure a well-trained workforce.”
