Disney World has a High-Tech Command Center, similar to Military Command Centers!
In my 30 Dec Round-Up I linked to an article about how Disney World is trying to tackle lines in it’s Orlando theme parks. They are not only trying to find ways to make lines shorter by tweaking rides, but also redirecting or attracting crowds away from rides experiencing peek wait times.
The article on the New York Times site talked about the new high tech command center that Disney has built to monitor the parks and control/direct their efforts to make guest’s experience in the parks more enjoyable.
This command center, under the Magic Kingdom, is very similar to your average military command center, where our troops are stationed world-wide and work every day.
Well, I just found this article on recruitingtrends.com which talks about the skills our troops bring to the civil sector when looking for their next job. The article calls the Disney command center big news because “The Walt Disney Operational Command Center is news because it is a clear, understandable, and relevant adaptation of military concepts to civilian organizations.”
As our world becomes more and more high-tech the high-tech skills our troops use to defend our country will become more and more valuable.
How can your MOS/AFSC apply to the civil sector? How’s the continuing education coming? What’s your exit strategy?
