Abstract : This paper describes how an Executive Steering Group (ESG) built a 'management team' consisting of members from three organizations primarily responsible for the evaluation and feedback component of the Strategic Submarine Force SWS Training Program described in Part I of this two-part presentation. PTEP (Personnel and Training Evaluation Program) is the component within the SWS Training Program which has a broad evaluation and feedback charter. The ESG addresses policies, issues, and activities as they relate to the whole PTEP evaluation responsibility within the training system. The variety, scope and complexity of PTEP evaluation responsibilities that must be carried out in a dynamic environment require close coordination, frequent communication and periodic assessments/status reports from those assigned major tasking. This paper discusses the dynamic environment and the factors at work when ESG meetings were instituted, describes the composition of the group, tells how actions are assigned and tracked, and the contribution of the ESG to developing and maintaining a functioning 'management team' in support of the SWS Training Program.
