Mortenson chosen for GSL program

Former Becker County administrator Tom Mortenson has been selected to participate in the Government Strategic Leaders program at the National Defense University's Information Resource Management College.

Mortenson was selected because of his expertise in government, business and leadership skills.

The Information Resource college is the Department of Defense's (DoD) preeminent education institution for information technology leadership and open to DoD military and civilians, federal agency, U.S. industry, and international defense ministry students and other select strategic leaders.

The program provides leaders the essential tools and strategies required to lead dynamic, complex, and diverse 21st century organizations.

Primary areas of the program include leadership; process management; information technology, policy, and security; transformation; and management of acquisition processes and reform.

The curriculum engages participants in understanding their unique role and those of other organizations, and how to collaborate to achieve organizational, inter-agency, and national mission and goals.

Participants form a learning community to share knowledge, analyze and leverage strategic resources (human, technological, and financial), and create and articulate a vision for themselves and their organizations.
