WANTED - PASSIONATE, PROFESSIONAL & CREATIVE COMPANY LEVEL COMMANDERS. If you have ever sat and thought that someone, somewhere must have already done what you are trying to do for the first time, then the VitalGround community of practice website is for you. If you think that as commanders and leaders we officers could better share our knowledge, then VitalGround is for you. If you have a particular interest in any aspect of Army life that affects company-level commanders then your contribute to the site would be of enourmous value. VitalGround is an internet based website for all Company-level Commanders. It is more than just a chat forum, and uses Microsoft SharePoint to permit the sharing of knoweldge from those with the experience to those in the experience. It will contain facilities to upload documents, presentations, spreadsheets, pictures and other tools that company commanders have created themselves or are of use. I am now looking for moderators and topic-leads to assist in the early design of VitalGround to make it as user-friendly and as relevant as possible. The site is being built right now by a small number of Army officers and soldiers in the margins of their day jobs. It will have an initial operating capability in Spring 07 and will have a full operating capabiliy by the summer. The Winter edition of BAR contains a lenghty article explaining exactly what the intention of the site is and the link http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=13084.html provides some clue as to its antecendents. If you want to get involved at this stage, and help design and manage a collaborative workspace for company level commanders, then please email me at work (KRH-DSQN-OC) or through this means. You will be about 4 years ahead of the rest of the Army... but they will catch up!
