Delegates of Defence Policy to Capability (DP2C) brace themselves as the course reaches its final week

28 January 2019 / Categories: DA News and Events

It’s the third and final week for DP2C delegates. Last week proved another busy week which also included an industry day, where their senior managers received a taster of the delegates learning.  

Throughout the course, delegates have had the opportunity to understand the strategic and economic context in which defence finds itself, and how defence operates at the highest levels to develop defence policy and strategy in response. Analyse the issues regarding capability delivery, through life, and evaluating the relationships in acquisition and support between defence industries and the MOD in times of austerity.

At the end of this course delegates will have a greater understanding of Defence Policy to Capability to take away with them to implement into their own working environments

Mike Nayler, Dell technologies said:

“Week two, proved to be another great week with a mix of syndicate activity and lectures. Hearing political and military leaders, mixed with academic thinking creates a powerful learning environment.”

The course, appealing to middle or senior managers also examines how defence is organised and managed together with the processes and plans that enable capability management, how defence is scrutinised by external authorities and in what way defence is held accountable by parliament and others as well as using practical exercises to examine, analyse and understand a generic process of delivering policy driven capability within emerging resource constraints.
