Management Mentor Modules available fall 2005: DAU partners with Harvard Business School.

In January, the Defense Acquisition University partnered with Harvard Business School Publishing to procure the Harvard Business School ManageMentor modules. These 37 HBS modules will strengthen the softskills for the AT & L workforce, for select members of the private sector who have attended DAU courses, and for students who receive training through the Federal Acquisition Institute/DAU partnership.

When deployed in October 2005, the Harvard Manage-Mentor modules will be an easy-to-use online performance support tool that provides information and materials on more than 37 topics fundamental to managerial success. Topics will range from running an effective meeting or managing a project to more complex tasks such as negotiating or keeping a team on target. For each topic, practical information will be presented using the following methods:

* Core concepts

* Tips and tools

* Action steps

* Resources

* Test yourself

* Interactive practices

* Exercises focused on questions like, What would you do? Where should you focus?

To take advantage of these modules, look for publication of the Management Mentor Modules Web site in the November-December issue of Defense AT & L under "Career Development." For questions or more information on AT & L-wide deployment of the modules, please contact Rebecca Clark at
