Bill Kobren

According to an announcement from our communications team, DAU and the Acquisition Innovation Research Center will host their next quarterly research forum on Dec. 9, 2022. This second forum will provide an opportunity for researchers from both AIRC and DAU to present new findings, information and insight into the future of Defense Acquisition. AIRC principal investigators will present their research to acquisition practitioners, who will be given an opportunity to provide feedback on that research.

AIRC presenters, Rob Handfield, PhD, Bank of America University Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management from North Carolina State University and U.S. Air Force Lt Col Daniel J. Finkenstadt, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Defense Management, Naval Postgraduate School will share early lessons learned and future research related to the topic "Defense Acquisition Education and Training – Gamified.”

DAU Professors of Acquisition Management and Program Management will discuss the progress of a new pilot program known as the Kobayashi Maru Multi-Functional Team Workshop. The workshop attempts to simulate more realistic training experiences. The workshop gathers a multi-functional team and puts them into an environment where they can enhance critical thinking skills and make time critical acquisition decisions.
