Recommended Reading for the DoD Life Cycle Logistician
Several years ago I shared details about a Recommended Reading List for the Life Cycle Logistician and Product Support Manager developed by DAU as a public service for our workforce members. For those who have not visited the site recently – or never visited it before – wanted to let you know that the list has been updated and a new July 2014 list is now available directly from the homepage of the Logistics Community of Practice (LOG CoP) or directly at Life Cycle Logistics Career Field Recommended Reading List.
As I shared at the time, “we often have students and other life cycle logistics professionals ask if there is a “recommended reading list” of books that the life cycle logistician or the product support manager should consider reading or having available as a reference to enhance their own professional development. As long-time readers of this blog know...the answer is an emphatic yes! Although I am loathe to reusing content, in this case I believe this information that many of you may not be aware of, so am sharing it again as a public service.
A few things to keep in mind, including the fact this is a living list, posted in no particular order, and intended to be regularly updated based on inputs, suggestions, and newly published reference materials. In addition, as I said before, it is intended solely to assist logistics professionals in broadening their professional knowledge by providing examples of career field-relevant works. It is by no means, nor should it be considered as being complete or all encompassing, nor is in any way intended to endorse the views or works of any particular book, author, or publisher. In other words, this does not imply an official DoD or DAU endorsement of any of these materials. Additionally, this list remains a perpetual work in progress. If you have ideas, suggested additions, or recommended changes to this list, please let us know via the comments section to this blog.”
