We at the Cove believe that building networks is the ‘battle-winning’ idea of the future. It is through networks (both human and machine) that the Australian Army can become far more than the sum of our (already epic) parts. The Cove itself is very much part of this belief.
But we also believe that variety is the spice of life. Military professionals need lots of different forums for their development … all of which seek to try to complement the other. You can see this in the collaborative work of the Cove, Grounded Curiosity, DEF Aus, the Postern Association, Logistics in War and other Australian sites.
It is in this spirit that we advertise a great startup from an inspirational young Australian military professional. Junior Tactician (or click image above) is an informal forum focused on the self-development of young Army (and broader ADF) commanders. It works around three things; ‘Tactical Decision Exercises’, ‘Team Skill Development’ and a ‘Professional Forum’.
The designer, who built the site entirely off his own back, is just starting out in his military career … but he was foresighted enough to see the need for such a network, and dedicated enough to give his own time to building it. It is this sort of spirit that will continue to give the Australian Army an edge. We’ll leave it to him to introduce himself.
Junior Tactician will launch on Anzac Day, 25th April 2017. You can subscribe for updates now, and register from the 25th. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s help build another excellent Australian Army network.
