As we have seen through our past Tuttle Award submissions, there are many ways to implement and measure improvements and innovation. Learn how unit-level leadership made work culture adjustments to produce a great effect for their squadron and the customers they serve.

Lt Col John (Jt) Tran, LOGTECH Advanced Alumni, who later pursued his MBA through the IU-IDB MBA program, learned a simple truth from his time at LOGTECH: How you treat your internal customer will be directly reflected on how you treat your external customers. After returning to his squadron, Jt decided to put this newly learned truth into action. He implemented a "10-hour day" restriction to give Airmen scheduling predictability, along with other leadership initiatives reducing the number of daily task requirements, allowing airmen to "reset." He also worked with leadership to narrow unit priorities to core competencies of the aircraft maintainers and their resiliency. These changes, along with others, increased unit readiness, quality, productivity, and morale, yielding an increase in Quality Assurance ratings from 78 to 90 and Mission Capable ratings from 69.5% to 79.3%, all in the course of only 6 months. Jt directly applied knowledge gained from his LOGTECH education to produce a great effect for his organization.

How have you applied knowledge gained from an IDB program to help your organization excel? Let us know! Submit an application for the Tuttle award now: https://www.idb.org/alumni/award-submission/
