The Joint Staff: Completing the Metamorphosis
Study project rept.
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
The Armed Forces of the United States have changed dramatically since the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act of 1986. The combat effectiveness of the Armed Forces in the Gulf War validated the organizational changes mandated by the Goldwater-Nichols Act. Much more needs to be done. If Americas Armed Forces are to maintain the technological superiority and capability achieved in the 1980s, then the Armed Forces must capitalize on the information technology explosion sweeping the world today. The Armed Forces must also seek out and implement the opportunities available in training, organization, and industry to enhance efficiency and cost effectiveness. The Joint Staff must complete the metamorphosis by the Goldwater-Nichols Act, and become the focal point for planning, coordination, and force building in order for the Armed Forces to enter the 21st Century as the worlds premier fighting force.
