Monday, January 4, 2021
Organizations that maintain good strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats analyses can pivot when the environment changes and an unexpected challenge presents itself. This document outlines the Medical Readiness and Training Command’s (MRTC) seamless pivot from planning and performing large-scale medical collective training events to leveraging core competencies to continue to enable the Department of Defense’s ready medical force through observation, analysis, and entry of lessons learned into the Joint Lessons Learned Information System. Recommendations from the MRTC include operational and strategic improvements. Some of these improvements are newly learned as a result of MRTC’s response to COVID-19, while others exercise and implement policies and procedures that are in place but have been neglected.
