USMC Taps Federal Employees for Small Unit Training Ideas

The U.S. Marine Corps‘ Training and Education Command seeks ideas from federal employees as part of an innovation challenge that aims to optimize small-unit training, DoD Buzz, DoD Buzz reported Monday.

Hope Hodge Seck writes TECOM has received approximately 150 challenge submissions so far and will continue to accept ideas until March 31 through a dedicated website that can be accessed using Defense Department credentials.

“Sometimes it’s hard for this organization to look inside itself for new ideas… so one of those ways that you get good ideas is, you go outside the organization,” said Maj. Gen. James Lukeman, commanding general of TECOM.

USMC officials will review responses in April and notify challenge winners in May, Seck reported.

The report said the challenge’s winners will receive a free trip to Quantico, Virginia-based TECOM where they will have the opportunity to brainstorm with subject matter experts.
