- Provide examples from the US Navy Post-Deployment Interview Program
- Delve into alternative principles to spark insight and understanding.
Time required: 40 minutes plus questions
Tactical Training Group Pacific teaches officers assigned as Knowledge Managers to employ principles when faced with Knowledge Management problems or opportunities. Why principles? Principles, similar to "Force equals Mass multiplied by the Acceleration," become powerful tools that enable KMOs to analyze and solve diverse problems. This presentation will use Tactical Training Group Pacific's Post-Deployment Interview Program as the primary example and the session starts with a short description of the opportunity that led to the creation of the interview program and the subsequent evolution of the program. Five KM Principles taught during the Navy's Afloat Knowledge Management Course will be introduced and explained. These five Principles are also part of the Knowledge Superiority curriculum at the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterrey. Examples from the interview program will highlight those five principles and their application in the full training cycle of the Navy's most complex organization afloat, the Carrier Strike Group. The presentation ends by reflecting on the last eight years of execution of the interview program, and introducing additional principles that sparked insight and a shift in understanding of both how and why the interview program works.
Michael Hill is a Puzzle Solver. He has thirty years of education, training and experience solving operational and tactical puzzles for the United States Navy, including twenty years of unknowingly and eight years of purposefully practicing Knowledge Management in the military and as a contractor.
An instructor for the United States Navy's Afloat Knowledge Management Course for the last eight years, Mike is a team member of a repeat winner of the Department of the Navy's Chief Information Officer KM Award at Tactical Training Group Pacific (TTGP). His team was a team finalist for the KM Reality Award in 2016 (KM World awards). On this team, Mike trains naval officers for their role as Knowledge Management Officers.
The overall mission of TTGP is to train Carrier Strike Group and Amphibious Readiness Group staffs to integrate subordinate units, deploy and operate 24/7/365 in a limited bandwidth environment for months on end. Or in commercial terms, acquiring vastly different companies that haven't worked together before, integrating them into one successful company, then moving the entire organization 12,000 miles to an austere environment where they must produce while sustaining their work force. Then return, divest everything, and do it all over again with another set of new companies.
Mr. Hill has a Bachelor's of Science degree from the U.S. Naval Academy and a Master's from The Australian National University.
