This book tells the riveting, true story of a learning revolution that took?place within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)—a revolution that gave rise to arguably the most recognized and benchmarked corporate university in the world Defense Acquisition University (DAU). Told by the remarkable men who led the charge, Frank J. Anderson, Jr. and Dr. Chris Hardy, it serves as both a practical handbook for organizing trying to leverage as a competitive advantage and as an inspirational guide for anyone striving to transform a vision into reality. In 2000, Anderson helped to transform the training division for the 128,000-person Acquisition workforce, which is responsible for acquiring products and services for the U.S. Department of Defense. Anderson helped to create a corporate university, even though the concept was new and there were no guidelines. With creative ideas, pioneering technologies, innovative business models and original theories, Anderson overcame many obstacles and helped to set a new direction.
