Live, virtual, and constructive-training environment: a vision and strategy for the Marine Corps
MetadataShow full item record
TheMarine Corps is developing the Live, Virtual, and Constructive–Training Environment (LVC-TE) program without a full vision and strategy. Without a properly developed vision and strategy, theMarine Corps will likely identify the wrong requirements and implement the program in a detrimentally inefficient manner. Through researchingMarine Corps policies and educating numerous Marines and civilians throughout HeadquartersMarine Corps and the operating forces, the author was able to determine that few personnel are aware of LVC-TE and there is no process in place to ensure appropriate representatives are educated on LVC-TE or are provided the opportunity to offer inputs to the requirements process. With root problems identified and by gathering information on potential technological improvements and training applications for LVC-TE, the author was able to devise numerous recommendations that provide a comprehensive vision and strategy for LVC-TE. Recommendations are made for a comprehensiveMarine Corps vision and strategy with a focus on assigning a capabilities integration officer to LVC-TE and adherence to an integrated process in order to ensure the correct requirements are identified, prioritized, and implemented in an efficient manner.
