IDB delivers educational programs and research to teach, challenge, and inspire leaders who work with and within the defense enterprise to achieve next-level results for their organization. Our programs and research projects cover topics including Logistics, Supply Chain and Life Cycle Management, Complex Industrial Leadership, Strategic Studies, and Global Business and Defense Studies, Continuous Process Improvement, and Stabilization and Economic Reconstruction. Because each of our existing program offerings was originally custom-built, IDB can also build a custom education program or undertake a research project to meet your organization's needs.
