The Naval Postgraduate School developed the Massive Multiplayer Online War Game Leveraging the Internet (MMOWGLI), a Web-based idea-exploration game that encourages innovative thinking. MMOWGLI is an open-source Web-based software and currently operates on the nps.edu infrastructure, supporting any user's Web browser. The game is designed to support a large number of distributed global players working together on idea generation and action planning, with an eye towards surfacing innovative outlier strategies. MMOWGLI project capabilities were produced with baseline support by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), which chartered and sponsored MMOWGLI platform development.
Using the MMOWGLI collaborative game platform, the Deputy Undersecretary of the Navy (DUSN) Management wants to conduct a game on the broad topic of attracting and retaining the workforce of the Millennial Generation. The MMOWGLI game will be designed and executed such that a large and diverse group of players, drawn from within the Navy/MC stakeholder community, as well as from outside the Navy/MC stakeholder community, can contribute their ideas toward helping the DUSN Management imagine and implement new ideas oriented towards attracting and retaining the Millennial workforce.
