MOBILIZING THE MISSION THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
Every day, national security leaders must confront threats from the technological advances of our adversaries in an increasingly complex and competitive strategic landscape. Simultaneously, leaders must overcome the internal barriers that impede innovation. It is paramount that leaders across DoD understand how current digital technologies fit into the mission of our forces and how to lead teams that can adapt to the accelerating pace of change.
But innovative tools, like artificial intelligence, aren’t reserved for the future…they are here now.
Join us to learn how tech can have a dramatic impact on your programs and how to make it reality. Leaders will leave the DETEC program with practical knowledge, a tactical plan tailored to their organization, and an exceptional network of peers and coaches to provide ongoing support.
A UNIQUE FORMAT: DRIVING RESULTS
DETEC is not a traditional classroom training course. Modeled after executive education seminars from top MBA programs, the format of the course combines seminar style discussion, dynamic presentations from experienced leaders, interactive design thinking workshops, and two salon events with tech executives and innovative leaders across government.
The fast-paced DETEC course will arm participants with an actionable plan to drive innovation across their organization. Participants will workshop an existing challenge inside their organization throughout the three day program. Hands-on expert-led workshops help leaders identify the right tech solutions, lead effective implementation and measurement, and manage transformation across teams and stakeholders.
Leaders will leave the DETEC program with practical knowledge, a tactical plan tailored to their organization, and an exceptional network of peers and coaches to provide ongoing support.
Register today to join an exclusive cadre of DoD leaders in driving innovation to improve mission outcomes and keep our country safer.
