Creating an “AI Ready” Organization

Our team of “AI-Ready” experts and thought leaders provided unparalleled expertise and insight to the Department of Defense (DOD), in planning, coordinating, and establishing the Defense Business Systems Center of Excellence (DBS CoE).

Applying intentional organizational creativity, engineering, and Agile principles, we designed and delivered DBS CoE initial operational capability (IOC) in less than 9 months.

IOC included critical business system strategies, tools and methodologies necessary to bolster DoD’s DBS modernization efforts.

As a result, the newly established DBS CoE was credited with reducing IT capability investment risks across DLA’s enterprise, and incrementally improving business system life cycle outcomes for the Warfighter.

The Defense Business Systems Center of Excellence (DBS CoE) was asked to assess the impact to the non-military Services or Intelligence Community agencies of the DoD, collectively referred to as the “4th Estate”.

Having helped establish the DBS CoE, our team was able to quickly establish and execute a plan of action, leveraging our analysis framework that includes data collection, analysis, and synthesis.

Through our process, we reviewed applicable acquisition, procurement, and contract policy/guidance documentation, and current CWS capabilities, combined with interviews.

Our analysis enabled us to accurately identify CWS gaps with potential contract writing and administration needs, and provide DPAP, DLA, and 4th Estate leaders with essential insights and recommendations supporting explicit acquisition decisions.
