Wayne Gafford worked at ADL from December 2006-January 2012. Then and now, he leads and advocates for strategic initiatives that align technical learning data with system life cycle management. Working in the Product Support Office at the Port Hueneme Naval Surface Warfare Center in California, he is currently advancing the implementation and adoption of Product Lifecycle Management in the Navy Training Enterprise, an initiative that cuts away at curriculum latency and learning decay by providing data management solutions. Curriculum data models integrated into the digital thread of product data is the key tenet to his work. With a Masters in Education and fifteen years in technical publishing, his friends and relatives still think he works for the CIA.
