WASHINGTON – The next Flank Speed Live Town Hall will occur Wednesday May 18 at 2:00 p.m. ET. This is the second event in what is scheduled to be a bimonthly series. The inaugural town hall occurred in March.
This month’s session will focus on Navy Digital Workforce Modernization, with Program Executive Office (PEO) Digital Acting Executive Director Barry Tanner serving as executive sponsor and one of three presenters.
Flank Speed is not just a different IT platform, it is changing the way the Navy operates, and Tanner will discuss just that, including how he sees the platform evolving over time.
“While most of us have been focused on Flank Speed as a new platform for email, that really just scratches the surface of what you can do with these new capabilities,” said Tanner. “I’m really looking forward to talking about how these new tools enable new ways of working that save time, prevent duplication of effort, and bring teams closer together. A few small changes in how you do business can reap huge benefits – and we have some great examples of how that works in practice.”
Some of those small examples will be showcased by Planet Technologies’ Learning Strategist and Adoption Specialist Tamara Bredemus, who will be providing a demo of basic tools and explaining how they can simplify employee workload.
PEO Digital Acting Technical Director Dave Spencer will be the third and final speaker for Wednesday’s session, providing a demo of real use cases of Microsoft Planner and Microsoft Forms.
The session will end with a question and answer period where questions asked in the chat will be addressed in real time as time and expertise allows. Questions not addressed during the live session will be answered offline and posted to the Flank Speed Hub.
Invitations to the Town Hall are available on the newly-redesigned Flank Speed Hub and via the Navy Champions’ Network. Those who have not transitioned to Flank Speed may still join via a web browser.
