What is DoD doing to break down information stovepipes across the military? How has net-centricity changed over time? Join us as we will explore this question and so much more with our very special guest Dave Wennergren, Assistant Deputy Chief Management Officer at the U.S. Department of Defense on The Business of Government Hour. Here's a video sampling of Dave's always cogent insights

The imperative to improve the business operations of the U.S. Department of Defense has never been greater. Secretary of Defense Gates and Deputy Secretary Lynn have clearly articulated the pressing need for reform, driving action across all business areas such as acquisition and logistics, finance, and personnel. Transforming these business processes and systems is motivated by the need to make better use of resources, improve stewardship, and provide the best support possible to the warfighters. The Office of the Deputy Chief Management Officer plays an integral role in making these reforms a reality.  

  • How is DoD improving business operations?
  • What is DoD doing to better use its resources, improve its stewardship, and provide the best support possible to the warfighters? AND
  • How is DoD leveraging technology and innovation to be more efficient and effective?

We will explore these questions and so much more on the next The Business of Government Hour with our very special guest Dave Wennergren, Assistant Deputy Chief Management Officer at the U.S. Department of Defense.

Here's a video highlight of our discussion with Dave Wennergren on what DoD is doing to break down information stovepipes across the military and how net-centricity has changed over time.
