Welcome to the pcc MMOWGLI Game!
Welcome the pcc Professional Core Competencies MMOWGLI war game. We are looking at requirements for new junior officers joining the Navy.
Thank you for taking the time to participate! Your participation can help us ensure that our future Naval officers are receiving the best possible training. Whether you are officer or senior enlisted, Navy, Marine or Merchant Marine, your thoughts and opinions are important!
Why are we here?
All Naval officer accession programs are designed to produce officers with a basic knowledge of the Naval profession and to enhance moral, mental, and physical development. Their goals are to instill in graduates the highest ideals of honor, courage, and commitment and prepare them to assume the highest responsibilities of military service and command.
This is your chance to "sound off" on what new junior officers need to learn. We all want them to be effective leaders right when they join the fleet.
The PCC manual delineates the professional core competencies required of basically trained officers from the following officer accession programs:
Next, please be sure to watch the Call To Action video. It describes why we're playing this game:
Call to Action: We need your help! Navy and Marine Corps officers and senior enlisted are invited to provide input on the Professional Core Competencies for basically trained officers, 27 April - 17 May 2015.
Your mission: review these competencies to revalidate current (and identify new) training requirements. Core requirements are shown under "Current Competencies" seed cards. "Future Competencies" are your opportunity to present fresh new ideas. Player contributions are essential. Please join!

Let's Play! Please click up down and all around to check out the different competency areas. What is required? Whta are other people saying? What do you think? You can click on any card to view it, and then add a child-card response .
As we start the pcc game, there are already 243 idea cards in play. These cards each represent the current competencies from the approved Officer Professional Core Competencies (PCC) Manual. Wow, that’s a whole lot of reading! You may find that you are more interested or have more knowledge about certain competency areas. It’s OK to concentrate on one or two areas, but feel free to join in the conversation in as many areas as you would like. We all want to know what you think!
What's next? The “Future Competencies” area is where you can start a discussion about new officer competencies that you think might need to be added. What are today's new junior officers missing? What did you, or your first division officer, need to know that was a surprise? Say what you think please. Remember though, we are looking for “basically trained” officers – so please don’t go into specific items like pieces of equipment unless it is something everyone who is an officer should know.
Again, we appreciate your support and participation. Our motto: play the game, change the game!
