About a year before Ken Krieg left his position as under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, he challenged the Defense Acquisition University to take a more concentrated review of team training in the defense acquisition workforce. With additional team training specifi cally focused on sharpening intact teams, he felt the defense acquisition workforce could operate at even higher performance levelssomething the Department of Defense commonly demands. He even codifi ed it as a near-term training goal in the 2007 AT and L Human Capital Strategic Plan, V3.0, under Workforce Goal 4.2.3, Pilot an initial unitcohort training program. He also encouraged the use of state-of-the-art simulation technology.
