How does the Department of Defense identify and articulate what it needs to achieve the Department's mission? What are the "must do's" to successfully describe a capability and be approved as a capability requirement? Who are the key players of the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) process? What are the key levers and opportunities to influence what it is that we acquire early in the requirements process?
Who Should Attend:
Anyone from government, industry, and academia who has an interest in Department of Defense Acquisitions and the Acquisition Process and how it relates to the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS).
Knowledge we share with Executives Series:
What do your executives learn when they train with the Defense Acquisition University? What is the "executive tea" (i.e., scoop) when it comes to Defense Acquisition? Wouldn't you like to be armed with the same knowledge, perspective, and best practices that DAU shares with the Department's executive cadre?
This webinar series shares with the Defense Acquisition Workforce, Industry, and Academia the knowledge and upskilling that DAU faculty provides DoD executives (General Officers, Flag Officers, Senior Executives Service Cadre) when they attend the Defense Executive Acquisition Overview Workshops (DAEOW).
Each discussion is led by a senior subject matter expert (SME) faculty-member that provides DoD Executive Training. Participants are encouraged to engage during the event, ask questions, and gain key insights about current trends and areas of Defense Acquisition interest.
