Abstract:

This study comprises an analysis of the Millennial Generation and how it will impact the future of the nuclear enterprise. The author analyzes the culture of the Millennial Generation to determine how that generational culture could affect the organizational culture of the nuclear enterprise. The study assesses potential trends for nuclear deterrence and applies the analysis of the Millennial Generation to those potential trends. The studys conclusion is that the Millennial Generation will alter the organizational culture of the nuclear enterprise and that the current culture is a legacy of the Strategic Air Command that culture is ill-suited for todays geopolitical landscape and nuclear enterprise. The concluding section of the study includes suggested further research for training, educating, and guiding the future leaders of the nuclear enterprise so that strategically literate and articulate leaders exist in 2035 to build and employ the next generation of nuclear deterrence.
