FORT SILL, Okla., -- Members of the Long Range Precision Fires team took a few days to consider the status quo. From Jan. 7 until Jan. 9 the majority of the cross functional team's headquarters staff met at Snow Hall to determine if there were ways they could reorganize themselves internally to be more efficient.
"We want to make sure we have the right person in the right place for the right purpose," said Robert Picht, deputy director of the LRPF cross functional team. "Everyone is busy and we don't want to waste people's time, but before we can make changes, we have to take a look at ourselves. This is our mission analysis."
During the three days, the LRPF team, to include the Soldiers, Department of Defense civilians and contractors, focused on the unit's mechanics. They evaluated areas to include organizational structure, working groups, meetings, and how to be more efficient with the time and talents they have.
The LRPF cross functional team is part of the Army Futures Command which is designed to help streamline the acquisition process for new weapons. Included in the LRPFs responsibilities are three lines of effort: the extended range cannon artillery, the precision strike missile, and the strategic strike missile. The LRPF is the Army's number one modernization effort.
