Is TMT right for your mission?

To assess whether your agency can benefit from adopting TMT, ask yourself these questions:

  • How efficient are interaction and cooperation between agency support and operations?
  • Are agency processes as efficient as they could be, and can you measure them?
  • Are capabilities designed for individual teams or for the entire agency?
  • Does the flow of information support fast-paced operational needs?
  • Are personnel often waiting on approvals or unaware of their status?
  • Do organizational decisions reside in personal inboxes rather than a central system?
