AFICA just announced the standup of the Firestarter program! AFICA is executing the program under SAF/AQC Line of Effort 3.3, “Experimentation – Exploit Lessons Learned from Closed Loop Innovation Efforts.” Specifically, the intent is to foster innovation within the Operational Acquisition enterprise among policies, processes, procedures, and tools. Essentially it establishes a process to gather innovative ideas, test them, and then implement/share across the enterprise.
In addition to introducing the program, AFICA is kicking it off by seeking idea nominations for the pilot run. Here’s the opportunity: what are those great, outside-the-box ideas that we have not tested? The conditions are ideal to get top leadership support and this program is the mechanism for making it happen. This is really an excellent opportunity to highlight your mission focused business leaders and share your great ideas!
I bet we can come up with a few great ideas among the members of the forum. Here is the submission info required:
Innovation: Description of the tech, innovative approach, concept, etc. Innovations can be products, processes, policies, or solutions.
Method of Acquisition:
Cost: Amount & Type of $
You don’t have to be from AFICA to join the discussion, but the ideas do need to be relevant to operational contracting. Use the format above and let’s put together some outside-the-box ideas for experimentation!
