Logistics Transformation course now being offered at Penn State.

The U.S. Army Logistics Transformation Agency, in collaboration with Pennsylvania State University's (PSU) Center for Supply Chain Research, has developed a groundbreaking, five-day Logistics Transformation course to provide mid-senior level managers an in-depth overview of ongoing logistics transformation activities, to focus on strategies for mastering change management, and to address the latest supply chain management practices, tools, and trends.

Titled Logistics Transformation Management--Developing and Accelerating Logistics Change, it was developed as a result of the institutionalization of logistics transformation in the past year, which established clear-cut goals and objectives, and assigned specific roles and responsibilities throughout the logistics community. It is designed for Process and Product owner representatives, as well as individuals in supervisory, planning, and management positions at the GS-14/15 or O-5/6 levels.

This course leverages the considerable experience PSU has accumulated working with both government and commercial sector clients. It utilizes lessons learned from Operations Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Iraqi Freedom (OIF), which validated logistics transformation requirements for logistics connectivity, improved distribution, demand reduction, and enhanced mobility and deployability.

The inaugural class was held Oct. 27-31, 2003, at the Penn State Campus in State College, Pa. It was moderated by former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Logistics and Materiel Readiness) Roger Kallock, with speakers from the private and public sector.

Additional courses are scheduled for spring and summer of 2004. For more information, contact William Koenig/Logistics Transformation Agency/DSN 771-6655/e-mail: william.koenig@hqda.army.mil.
