The Hurricane Lessons Learned challenge on the Coast Guard’s crowdsourcing platform, CG_Ideas@Work, was started as a way to preserve and institutionalize the wealth of lessons learned during hurricane response efforts. All Coast Guard personnel who participated in any of the response efforts are encouraged to share their observations, issues and ideas.
Leadership development opportunities are not reserved just for the military. The Office of Leadership offers many courses for civilians looking to grow their leadership knowledge base.
Formerly known as the Enterprise Common Ideation Platform, or ECIP Connect, CG_Ideas@Work gives all Coast Guard active duty, reserve, civilian and Auxiliary members the opportunity to share their ideas on how to make Coast Guard operations more efficient and effective. Two crowdsourcing challenges are open for your participation:
1) Identifying the primary challenges for the Coast Guard in 10 to 15 years and how to plan for them now, and 2) The Open Idea Forum, a general discussion of good ideas and best practices. The Innovation Program also is accepting nominations for the 2016 Captain Niels P. Thomsen Innovation Awards recognizing the year’s best idea submissions through CG_Ideas@Work.
