Brunssum, the Netherlands
- A team from JFC Brunssum (JFCBS) conducted an Expert Team Visit (ETV) to Kyiv, Ukraine, from May 5 to 9, on the subject of Operational Assessment as conducted in NATO.
Over three days the team, comprising Mr. Stuart Smith (one of JFC Brunssum’s Operational Analysts who did a commendable job when he found himself as the only Subject Matter Expert able to travel), and Lieutenant Commander Michelle Ward (from the HQ Military Partnership Branch), provided a variety of briefings to an audience of approximately 40 personnel that included mainly senior officers from across the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Topics briefed included Data Analysis, Operations Design and Risk Process. There was also time in the programme to conduct some thought provoking syndicate work which produced well considered and unexpected results.
During the week, the Ukrainian officers were also hosted at an informal dinner, allowing discussions to take place in a less formal setting than the classroom. This was the second of three ETVs that will be conducted by JFCBS staff in Kyiv this year.
