21st International Defence Educational and Acquisition Arrangement (IDEAA) Seminar

21-25 June 2010
Shrivenham, United Kingdom

 

Capability Management -- The Impact of Operations on Acquisition and the Effect of Education, Training and Research

 

Overview

The seminar will provide a broad, overarching view of defence acquisition and an international perspective on managing capabilities. It will address the future contexts in which key decisions will be made, and the implications for acquisition, particularly the capability management challenges. The conference will review national and international industry responses, as well as the consequences of these developments for education and training. The conference will be open to industry attendees to register and attend the discussions and events on Days Two and Three.

 

On Day One, the seminar begins with an overview of national approaches to managing capabilities in the acquisition environment. On Day Two, it develops the contextual setting (the changing world) and the impact of operations on acquisition. It continues with insights into capability management and discussion of its potential. Day Three provides a range of perspectives from prominent commentators on acquisition, covering such issues as capability management, operations, acquisition organisation, and acquisition tools and techniques. This will be followed by an industry panel. Day Four will focus upon methodologies for training and education plus approaches to research that will enable skills development and enhanced competencies. This will be brought together as a consideration of acquisition issues and challenges that will need to be addressed. The fifth and final day will highlight similar issues and challenges, but addressed from a differing contextual setting.

 

The conference will continue the effort to gain a broad international perspective. At the 20th IDEAA seminar held at the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) in the United States in 2009, there were 77 attendees from the U.S., UK, France, Germany, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. They had the opportunity to meet with speakers from government and industry from the U.S., UK, France, Germany, Singapore, India and Canada.
