Federal 100: Ronald Simmons

Ronald Simmons
Director of Knowledge Management Integration
Marine Corps

Simmons has instituted knowledge management concepts that enables the Marine Corps to decentralize operations and create virtual work environments.

"Ron is doing exciting things with [knowledge management] for the Marine Corps as well as the [Defense] Department," said Barbara Hoffman, the Navy’s principal deputy chief information officer. "One of the most interesting is the virtual work environment he's building based on [knowledge management] principles."

That environment has become a model throughout the Marine Corps. To guide the program to success, Simmons traveled to Iraq for a pilot project so he could have a thorough understanding of how knowledge management solutions work in such environments.
