213| A Publication of the Defense Acquisition University www.dau.mil TWENTY MINUTES FROM NOW Mark Oehlert The Department of Defense (DoD) acquisition workforce is reaching a point at which change—rapid, relentless change— will become the norm. The global marketplace and the bil- lions of consumers that make up the cyberspace called Web 2.0 will drive this change and wield inﬂuence over its fea- tures, products, and capabilities available to the DoD en- terprise—capabilities represented by words such as Twitter, Wikipedia, Flickr, Firefox, RSS, or blogging. To fully realize the potential of these technologies, even within the very real boundaries of policy and technology within which the de- fense acquisition workforce must operate, the author advo- cates in this article a degree of re-thinking about how busi- ness is conducted, both internally and externally, and even what the deﬁnition of that business is.
