Professional Roundtable Series: Military Education & Training in Conflict Analysis & Transformation

MGMWERX Montgomery, AL.


Dr. Thomas Matyók and Dr. Michelle Osborne implemented the Professional Roundtable Series as a part of the Negotiation Center's innovative approach to its Institutional Effectiveness Plan. The program's overall goals are to seek recommendations for enhancing education and training in conflict transformation, build awareness, collect data, and apply findings as a theory informed practice. Through these strategically aligned events, the center will expand targeted programs and services, as well as develop a larger network or professional resources.

Specific Questions/Points of Interest:

Conflict Transformation - Military members often face barriers to cooperative efforts when interacting with external individuals/groups. How do military members address/eliminate those barriers in the given environment, at various levels?

Education and Training - What are the barriers our military faces in today's learning environment, and what can we do to eliminate those barriers or foster better practice and retention of skills and knowledge?

Research and Assessments - Concepts such as leadership, communication, and effectiveness are often hard to measure, particularly on a large scale. How do we assess student success, and how do we quantify that measure so that it accurately captures conflict transformation skills?

AFNC's 31 March - 1 April Roundtable Series event will focus on recommendations from the colligate community, to include universities, colleges, military service academies, and education and training centers.

Who We Are

"MGMWERX was created under a Partnership Intermediary Agreement between DEFENSEWERX and the Air Force Research Laboratory to align with the education initiatives of Air University.

We augment Air University programs to enhance production of high-quality, innovative research and ideas that span issues of importance to the Air Force. This can include: doctrine, strategies, capability needs, operational concepts, training, education, and science and technology.

With a central downtown Montgomery location, MGMWERX provides Air University with a direct connection to diverse ideas and innovations that exist outside of the military. As part of the DEFENSEWERX ecosystem, MGMWERX has access to nationwide resources and brings these external connections to Air University creating the routine collision of ideas and fostering an engine for innovation of huge proportions. Through MGMWERX, Air University students are exposed to a broad cross-section of industry, academia, as well as non-traditional commercial partners, to be better prepared to deal with an uncertain future."
