3610 - Summary/Objective
361101 - Follow up ref SDS 99 0000, ref SDS 98 0000.
361103 - Stuart has not made progress on initiatives planned in the call on
361104 - 011005, ref SDS 99 FH4K, and confirmed in his letter. ref DRP 6 0001
361106 - He advised that DCMA is very busy, so nobody has enough time to think
361107 - about how to save time and money, as reported on 970910. ref SDS 48
361108 - 3479
361110 - [On 011106 letter to Jeff Conklin proposes seminar because there
361111 - is never enough time to improve. ref SDS A1 5V3O
361112 - ..
361113 - Stuart has not followed up on idea for sending SDS records to
361114 - colleagues to share his analysis of how SDS can help DCMA add
361115 - intelligence for saving time and money, reported on 010608.
361116 - ref SDS 81 RS4J
361118 - Today, we reviewed urgency for helping DOD add intelligence support,
361119 - as explained in POIMS, ref OF 1 2300, in light of events on 010911.
361120 - ref SDS 95 UP5K
361122 - Stuart feels Com Metrics is hard for DCMA to use for saving time and
361123 - money because it requires expertise, like the FSR role, support for
361124 - spy satallites, and pilots for airplanes, explained in NWO.
361125 - ref OF 3 6369 Stuart says DCMA wants to use SDS without training and
361126 - support. He believes a Communication Manager to use SDS cannot be
361127 - analogized to a pilot flying an airplane, as explained in NWO.
361128 - ref OF 3 3348 Stuart did not provide evidence showing intelligence
361129 - can be deployed without expertise.
361130 - ..
361131 - Stuart indicated again that the FSR role is controversial, and
361132 - so requires a lot of people skills to be effective. He is reluctant
361133 - to discuss with his boss using SDS to add value to this role, because
361134 - he cannot easily explain how Com Metrics will strengthen the FSR role,
361135 - that is mainly people skills, because he does not have command and
361136 - control of the record that has been submitted explaining this point.
361138 - Com Metrics has ROI of 10:1 this saves time and money, and so
361139 - improves FSR role.
361141 - The main people skill is "communication."
361143 - Communication takes up about 80% of a managers time. On 890809 an
361144 - executive explained that communication requires good listening, which
361145 - means understanding and follow up. SDS does this better than other
361146 - methods. ref SDS 3 CJ9J Stuart is worried military commanders and
361147 - civilian management don't believe listening, intelligence and analysis
361148 - can be aided by technology, except by working harder, as reported on
361149 - 890809. ref SDS 3 U87H
361150 - ..
361151 - Stuart has an idea in mind that SDS and Com Metrics can be used
361152 - for adding intelligence support on a project being managed by DOD in
361153 - Fort Wayne, Indiana.
361155 - Stuart will report progress on 011114.
361157 - [On 011113 Stuart submits notice of general DOD procurement for
361158 - intelligence support. ref SDS A2 0001
