ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. — Nowhere is change more evident than Aberdeen Proving Ground, where the Base Realignment and Closure program is changing the face of the installation into the Army’s center for science and technology.
By 2011, major, long-term organizations, such as the Army Environmental Command and the Ordnance School Brigade will have departed the installation. New organizations will move in from nearby bases. More than 6,000 high-tech jobs are coming to the region as the Army invests more than $1 billion in major construction. Change is coming to the installation on many levels.
During a May 13 executive coaching session at the Edgewood Conference Center, 10 Army civilians from the Research, Development and Engineering Command learned how to make change effective.
