Projects

Our team has a proven record of achieving success across a variety of industries and challenges. Take a look at some of the modern and creative solutions we’ve provided to our clients based on our years of military and contract work.

Defense Language and National Security Education Office (DLNSEO)

Summary

Our team provides support for data collection and analysis, and ensures effective communication of findings.

Challenge

DLNSEO requires support for the Defense Language, Regional Expertise, and Culture (LREC) Program and the Foreign Area Officer (FAO) Program in compiling data inputs, conducting analysis, preparing written and graphic reports and briefings, assisting coordination of pre-publication reviews, and participating in policy reviews and updates for Congressional reports, internal Department of Defense (DoD) reports, and FAO Program issuances.

Solution

Our team provides the personnel, management, and materials necessary to conduct data collection and analysis on LREC related subjects, synthesizes the results, and produces initial drafts of the findings. We provide experienced Operations Research/Systems Analysts and extensive first-hand experience as a FAO to assist DLNSEO’s Federal staff members in the data collection, analysis, and the formulation of updates or refinements to LREC policies and practices. Our personnel attend, participate in and prepare meeting summaries for a myriad of LREC-related forums, to include the Defense Language Steering Committee, Defense Language Action Panel, subordinate working groups and the joint FAO Council.

March2Success Program

Summary

Our team supports the image and recruiting efforts of the U.S. Army, by increasing the number of qualified recruit candidates.

Challenge

The U.S. Army seeks to increase the number of potential recruits who are able to satisfactorily complete the Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and state mandated competency tests. Additionally, to help Army recruiters gain improved access to schools.

Solution

We ensure the March2Success Program:

U.S. Army Cadet Command Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC)

Summary

Our team provides support in both recruitment and workforce management to ensure effective operations at all times.

Challenge

Providing consistent support to a critical U.S. Army mission while managing a workforce geographically-dispersed at 170 locations, primarily on university and college campuses, throughout the U.S. and several overseas territories.

Solution

We first ensure employees' safety and their ability to continue executing vital missions for the U.S. Army. We then use proven techniques of proactive management and continuous communications to support that workforce as it carries out its vital functions. This was a critical component of successful operations during the Coronavirus Pandemic, an event that required management agility and constant communications to ensure employees' safety and their ability to continue to execute vital missions for the U.S. Army.

U.S. Transportation Command

Summary

Our team recruited and managed a diverse workforce to provide Human Resource, Strategy, and Program Management Support to the Joint Enabling Capabilities Command (JECC), a joint subordinate command of the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM).

Challenge

JECC is an agile organization required to respond rapidly to real-world contingencies. Our organization was called upon to provide personnel with a widely-diverse set of specialized skills and abilities to serve in multiple areas of a fast-moving organization.

Solution

We recruited professionals from a base of experienced individuals who already had many of the specialized requirements needed to fill positions in the JECC (security clearances, familiarity with DoD systems). We then ensured these individuals were managed and treated as a team, even though they provided support to multiple sections of the organization. Our managers provided regular positive reinforcement to the team and emphasized their value in supporting JECC missions. Retention of these highly-specialized and skilled individuals was always in the 97% and higher range. This lack of personnel turnover and the attendant turbulence provided the JECC with the stable, experienced, and dedicated support required for success.

Naval Post Graduate School Senior Strategic Leadership Exercise Planning and Facilitation

Summary

Our Team provided the Naval Postgraduate School with support in the design and facilitation of a strategic Business War Game called SSLE (Senior Strategic Leadership Exercise). MAT planned and facilitated the U.S. Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) Senior Strategic Leadership Exercise (SSLE). The exercise was supported by an agent-based simulation engineered by Simulex, Inc.

Challenge

Task 1: Identify data and model sources for implementing the simulation requirements for the SSLE and interfacing with Simulex personnel to ensure that this information is properly implemented in the agent-based simulation technology. Identify emerging new requirements and recommend modification of existing requirements if necessary.

This included:

Task 2: Participate in the generation of the SSLE schedule of activities and events that blends simulation game playing time effectively with strategic workshops.

Task 3: Facilitation during the SSLE, including serving as observer/controller during the execution of the simulation scenarios, contributing to after-action reviews immediately following each move and after each scenario, and contributing to a final, overall after-action review.

Task 4: Provide a written report of the three-day exercise with recommendations for changes to be made for future SSLE.

Solution

MAT performed all tasks to standard and was noted for effective coaching of senior recruiting officers and senior staff. The game involved the complete recruiting operation from the U.S. Army mission and resource allocation down through Recruiting Battalion (RBN) mission assignment and adjudication. The results were briefed by MAT to the Recruiting Brigade Commanders, the Deputy Commanding General USAREC and ultimately to the Commanding General USAREC. Based upon performance, MAT Inc. was scheduled to be available to facilitate future SSLE.
