APRIL 27, 2015, GREAT LAKES, Ill. (NNS) – Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) and the United States Naval Academy (USNA) will use crowd-sourcing to receive ideas and suggestions from the entire Navy Officer Corps and Chief’s Mess regarding the core competencies of our future Navy and Marine Corps officers, April 27- May 7.
NSTC and USNA will launch the crowd-sourcing interactive website, MMOWGLI, which stands for “Massive Multi-player Online Wargame Leveraging the Internet,” as a tool and initiative to seek input that will impact the future of the naval officer corps.
The portal will be open from April 27th through May 7th for all officers and senior enlisted from every community to contribute at https://portal.mmowgli.nps.edu/pcc.
The crowdsourcing site is an Office of Naval Research (ONR) and Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) product and has been utilized on over a dozen different projects to utilize input from a large community of people to generate ideas and proposed solutions to large complex problems. Past games include Piracy, Energy, and Electromagnetic Maneuver.
NSTC and USNA will obtain fleet inputs from the officer and senior enlisted community throughout the Navy in a manner that will generate a comprehensive set of recommendations that will assist in validating and/or revising the Professional Core Competencies (PCC) Manual.
Professional Core Competencies set the professional development curriculum at every officer accession command.
The game allows players to choose core competencies, identify ideas of concern or revision and elaborate on them for refinement.
There is no time commitment required for gameplay and your submissions will be anonymous. The game will be open 24-hours a day during the open period.
This is an opportunity for everyone from senior enlisted and junior officers to command master chiefs and commanding officers to have an impact on the common core curriculum for the officers who are leading Sailors and contributing to the mission of the Navy.
