Pagination or Media Count:
To be effective on tomorrows battlefield, we must become masters of the infosphere. To accomplish this task, we must develop information knowledgeable leaders. The Army needs leaders who have a deep understanding of warfare in the context of the information age. Despite this need, students at USAWC--future senior leaders--are not being sufficiently instructed in this key joint warfighting mission area to become masters of the infosphere. This study defines the information operations IO conceptual knowledge required in senior leaders to be successful in warfare in the information age. Then it reviews the status of 10 education at USAWO. This review then leads to recommendations for changes to the course curriculum based on the curriculum of the School of Information Warfare and Strategys two-year pilot program. These changes are the catalyst for transforming industrial-age thinkers into information knowledgeable leaders.
