Watch the recording below to see the discussion from the June Tech Grove Connect Webinar.


Can you quantify the potential ROI of Live, Virtual, Constructive Training Environments (LVC-TE)? Join us for a conversation during the June Tech Grove Connect webinar as we explore how the United States Marine Corps, leveraging research by The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, created a robust model and methodology to help them understand the value of different levels of LVC and recommend a path for adoption. The model and methodology are repeatable, and can help industry understand how to better communicate training value to the Services as they develop new products and services for LVC platforms. Learn how to speak ROI on LVC and address training outcomes and warfighter readiness. Hear how the study directly impacted the Marine Corps’ decisions on where and how to invest in LVC programs. This month’s session highlights the vIITSEC 2020 Best Paper Nominee in the PSMA Category, "Quantifying Future Return on Investment of Live, Virtual, Constructive Training."
