The Organizational Offset

So far, so good. The U.S. military has a long history of absorbing new technology, but struggles to adapt its organizational constructs for the best application of that technology. One of the areas Deputy Secretary Work discussed at the Air Force Association was the military’s lack of focus on electromagnetic warfare. A report late last year from the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA) argued that the DOD has the technology needed to restore electromagnetic dominance to the U.S. military, but lacks a coherent strategy for using the technology. The focus on organizational reform, then, appears at first glance to be a good thing.
