War on the Rocks Networking Reception

War On The Rocks

Learning, Development, and Data…on the Rocks!

Join us for a LIVE War on the Rocks podcast recording, with sips and snacks, and senior leaders.

The Federal government, and in particular the Department of Defense, is prioritizing workforce, technology, and data modernization goals. Specific projects address topics like employee upskilling and reskilling, military personnel credentialing, technology-enabled training, next-generation wargaming, enterprise shared services, data interoperability, and AI-informed talent management. But these aren’t independent lines of effort. There’s a convergence of learning, development, technology, and data that’s heralding a fundamental change in how DoD educates, trains, prepares, and manages its military and civilian workforce.

The concept of an AI-informed, data-centric, hire-to-retire continuum of learning is fast becoming a reality, and with it, new questions are forming—from policy and ethics to agility and overmatch. In this panel, senior leaders will discuss the challenges, implications, and promise of modernizing learning and development in the DoD and beyond. How will these advancements contribute to readiness? How will new approaches in talent management affect the composition of the force? What might professional military education look like in an unfettered, modernized future state? What are the risks if this momentum falters, and we’re left with today’s training, education, and workforce systems?
