Abstract:

An examination of the magnitude and overall adequacy of strategic planning to include its needs, associated responsibilities, systems, processes, and planner competency. Data was obtained through literature search, personnel contact and interviews with joint command personnel, students, and college faculty members. Planning for strategic deployment is a long, precise, complex, and many faceted process employing highly dynamic systems - the Joint Strategic Planning System, the Joint Operation Planning System and several supporting systems. Cutting across all headquarters from the Department of Defense through service component commanders, such planning is totally reliant upon the efficiency, experience, knowledge, and perseverence of planning personnel. The planning systems are essentially well structured to accomplish planning requirements. However, personnel abilities, knowledge, background, and utilization are serious limiting factors in meeting the high standards necessarily required for planning of such significance to the security of the US. The Joint Chiefs of Staff should actively intercede to eliminate shortfalls which inhibit high quality strategic deployment planning. Author
