Chenega MIOS Companies Come Together for Mission-Critical Offsite

From August 9-11th, 2022, a group of Chenega MIOS companies came together in Sierra Vista, AZ, to discuss mission-critical matters and how MIOS can better serve its customers. The companies that attended all perform on contracts under Information Technology (IT) capabilities.

The offsite was hosted by the President of Cyberstar and General Manager of Chenega Decision Sciences (CDS), Mike Owens, and his team. It was held with the goal of understanding where each company stands as we come to the end of the Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) and how each company can improve and flourish in the coming year to grow as IT companies under the Strategic Business Unit (SBU).

Of the week, Mike said, “What a great event! It was awesome to have everyone together to collaborate on the future of MIOS and how to grow as an SBU as a whole. The face-to-face setting was exceptional in allowing us to cover some tough topics that wouldn’t necessarily have the same impact and get the same conversations sparked as they would through a virtual meeting. The results of this IT Offsite have exceeded all of our expectations.”

Each day, following business discussions, the teams had the opportunity to explore the history of Sierra Vista and the surrounding areas. Many people took this time to head over to Tombstone, a town just outside of Sierra Vista, known for its Wild West history. Others took the time to go over to Bisbee, another historical town known for its arts, music, and hospitality.

On the last day of the event, to round out the successes of the week, the entire group headed over to “Casa de Sallee,” also known as the home of Jeffrey Sallee, General Manager of Chenega IT Enterprise Services (CITES), for a barbecue. Everyone had a great time winding down from the week through great food, conversation, and some (friendly) competition – corn hole!

All in all, this strategic planning and team building offsite was a huge success and could not have been as beneficial without the cooperation and collaboration of the companies involved. Thank you to all teams for making the trip and for being ready to make a difference in MIOS.
