The CPP/DCPAS Training programs support the deliberate development of highly skilled civilian leaders who are well prepared to lead and excel in a joint, total force environment.

Public-Private Talent Exchange Memorandum Signed Policy and Implementation

Great news! On July 19, 2018, Secretary Shanahan approved the Public-Private Talent Exchange Program that was authorized in NDAA FY17, Section 1104. The PPTE Program allows DoD, with the agreement of a private-sector organization and the consent of the employee, to arrange for the temporary assignment (detail) of a DoD civilian employee to that private-sector organization, or an employee of their private-sector organization to the DoD. The PPTE will provide an opportunity to exchange knowledge, experience, and skills between the DoD and the private-sector.

Leader Development

It is Department of Defense (DoD) policy that a diverse cadre of highly capable, high-performing, and results-oriented civilian leaders shall be developed and sustained to lead effectively in increasingly complex environments, ensure continuity of leadership, and maintain a learning organization that drives transformation and continuous improvement across the enterprise. Accordingly, the DoD Leader Development Programs Division manages the DoD participation in the White House Leadership Development Program, and plans and executes the Vanguard Senior Executive Development Program, Defense Senior Leader Development Program, Executive Leadership Development Program, and Defense Civilian Emerging Leader Program. The following links provide information about these programs and instructions on how to apply to them.

DoD Civilian Leader Development Continuum and Framework

The DoD Civilian Leader Development Continuum depicts the progression of competencies needed as a DoD civilian rises through the leadership ranks, from fundamental competencies required of all leaders to strategic capabilities required of the most senior leaders.

The DoD Civilian Leader Development Framework defines five core leadership competencies and one technical core competency that DoD civilian leaders need to accomplish the 21st century national security mission. It also lists the 25 components of these core competencies, plus six fundamental competencies that form the foundation for success in each of the core competencies.
