Atlanta Chapter’s Monthly luncheon will be held on Friday, October 18th at the Golden Corral (2211 Cobb Pkwy Marietta GA 30080) close to the Battery. Lunch is buffet style and will begin at 11:30 AM. The presentation starts between 11:45 to noon.
The guest speaker will be Michael Leigh Class of ’79, CEO AKTOptimize.
Friday’s luncheon will enable our alumni to understand capabilities of overcoming deficiencies in human performance and see some actual examples currently utilized across the Fleet. Here is some of the information Michael will cover in the luncheon:
Navy and Marine Corps Programs are overcoming deficiencies in human performance (caused by lack of understanding) with Accelerated Knowledge Transfer (AKT) applications, for both operations and maintenance procedures. These visual learning tools are hardware agnostic and enable platform operators and maintainers to access software information from all devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, Smartphones and HoloLens. Content is self-paced and developed for fastest users, yet doesn’t leave first time reviewers behind. This enables officers, sailors and Marines to understand new systems in a fraction of time required through other traditional learning methods. They can also access these tools “just-in-time”, for instant recall while deployed in the field. Key focus is comprehension, retention and drive to action. NAVAIR, NAVSEA, NAVWAR (formerly SPAWAR), MARCORSYSCOM, BUMED and NSC all currently employ AKTs to generate: cost savings; readiness and safety improvements; and retention / communication of critical experiential knowledge / skills.
“As a Navy Captain, I lead initial development of Job Performance Aids (JPAs) in 2002 at Naval Air Warfare Center Training Support Division (NAWC TSD) in Orlando, FL. Later after overseeing turn-around of Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service (NATEC), I returned to N42 and N43 ACOS Reserve assignments with the Air Boss at Commander Naval Air Forces (CNAF) at NAS North Island, CA. Since 2004, I’ve lead continuous production of JPAs, Learning Performance Aids (LPAs) and variety of other AKTs for Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and other developers…delivering applications across all DoD Services.”
You will pay for the lunch buffet and any drinks at the door. I look forward to seeing everyone there. I hope everyone has a great week. Go Navy! Beat Army! .
