Job Number:
Fort Shafter,HI,US
Exercise Planner

The Opportunity:

Do you want to use your creativity, problem-solving, and storytelling skills to improve organizational mission performance in global defense? You understand there is no single or easy solution to prepare for the unforeseen. By creating and testing real-world scenarios, you know how to help defense organizations make faster and smarter decisions based on data.

As an Exercise Planner on our team, you'll assist a DoD client with a dispersed workforce, operating in a non-standard, OCONUS location, in a bilateral setting on a rotational basis to develop, implement, and measure the effectiveness of plans and procedures for an international partner. You will help create rich content using training systems and processes to tell a realistic story. You’ll listen to partner challenges and identify threats, gaps, or risks that need to be explored and provide a safe space for recommendations that will make lasting, real-world impact. You will not only be an exercise planner. You will be a coach, working with a partner to inculcate exercise planning best practices in a foreign context. You will work closely with the team training manager and U.S. advisors to ensure that the objectives of any given exercise nest with a fully developed, annual training plan. You will help establish methodologies to implement training or advisory programs within existing and appropriate fiscal and operational authorities. You will coordinate with the team assessments and data manager to assess the effectiveness of the POI. You will apply advanced consulting skills, extensive technical expertise, and full industry knowledge. You'll develop innovative solutions to complex problems. You'll work without considerable direction and mentor and supervise team members. This position requires extensive travel to an international location. 


Bring your skills to Booz Allen and discover solutions that will shape the future and help organizations thrive.
