Todd Burnett is passionate about training today’s Soldiers for the challenges they’ll face during deployment. A retired Command Sergeant Major for the U.S. Army who spent 30 years as a counter-improvised explosive device (IED) expert, Todd is committed to his work as the Booz Allen deputy program manager for the Global Threat Mitigation Program (GTMP)—a game-changing program that’s redefining excellence in client service. That dedication is magnified by the fact that his own son is now deployed in Afghanistan doing the same counter-IED route clearance operations that Todd once did. And Booz Allen helped to train him.
“I sleep better at night,” Todd says, “because I know my son and other Soldiers had multiple touch points with the training that Booz Allen provides. I know that the work we do is saving lives.”
This training is just one aspect of GTMP, a complex grouping of work comprised of 13 separate functions that Booz Allen performs for the benefit of 50+ Department of Defense, intelligence community, and federal civilian clients. These 13 distinct functions have a common goal: mitigating threats around the globe.
“With GTMP, we embarked on something that hadn’t been tried before—if you bring together clients with similar needs and requirements, you can create efficiencies, lower costs, allow for collaboration and knowledge sharing, and streamline processes,” says Booz Allen Program Manager Adam Straub. And it’s worked. Military, intelligence, and other organizations operate independently from one another, which can make information-sharing more challenging. GTMP is designed to bring people together—with its own motto: Victory Through Partnership.
