This research was undertaken at the request of the U.S. Air Forces Strategic Planning Directorate. The task objective was to develop and help implement a common Air Force planning framework based on the strategies-to-tasks STTframework. Within the Air Force, the resourcing requirements and recommended allocations are developed within the Major Commands MAJCOMs, and the Headquarters Air Force uses the Corporate Structure and the Air Force Board of Directors to look across all Air Force requirements and set institutional priorities. The purpose of this research was to develop a common planning framework that could extend across the Air Force, allow the corporate Air Force to develop and adjudicate requirements and resourcing options, and link to the external environment. The Directorate specifically asked that the framework incorporate the Air Force vision and capture nonoperational demands, and that the STT methodology provide the foundation for the framework.
