DoD Announces Military-Industry Talent Exchange Program

The Department of Defense launched a new pilot program to increase the understanding of business operations between military and commercial sectors. The DoD said Wednesday its Defense-Industry Talent Exchange Pilot Program will involve 13 military and industry participants who would share the best practices from respective sectors. The program will seek high-performing, mid-career civilians who have demonstrated potential to serve as leaders.

“In its inaugural year, this pilot program implements Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan’s July 2018 guidance on the use of a new public-private talent exchange authority provided by congress,” said Jose Gonzalez, executive director of human capital initiatives at the DoD.

He added that the department would use the pilot program's results to inform future efforts.
