    Event Code :


A round table discussion held by Program Manager for Cyber, Test, and Training (PM CT2). 

Industry is concerned with understanding customer needs because it informs strategic investments in plant, people, equipment, and technology. At the same time, there is a limited understanding within the Department of Defense of how industry operates, how it responds to competition, and how it is affected by shareholders and profit motivations.

In today’s acquisition environment, it is imperative that the Government and Industry reach a better understanding of long term strategic imperatives. As a result, PM Cyber, Test, and Training (PM CT2) is focusing on new engagement opportunities to do the following:

  • Develop an in-depth understanding of how industry operates to act strategically.
  • Better understand senior industry leader perspectives and challenges.
  • Enable interactions to fully understand and anticipate industry issues and challenges.
  • Provide PM CT2 assessment of long term technology and capability gaps.

In this webinar, senior leaders will discuss their thoughts and insights on effective strategic engagement between Government and Industry. Afterward, the senior leaders will answer questions in this area submitted by attendees.
