Over the past few years there has been a debate over the failure of the American government to focus and coordinate all of the elements of power into a unified effort for the strategic security challenges of the 21st century This debate has led many people to call for a transformation of the interagency process Whether or not this process becomes codified in law or continues according to the current concept of the lead agency framework incorporating diverse US agencies into the joint campaign design will be a significant step to improving applications of national power in a campaign as outlined in Joint Publication 5-0 Joint Operation Planning December 2006 This SRP reviews current joint doctrine and finds the doctrine is sufficient to support the lead Federal Agency concept in campaign design when the effort is supported by a humanistic approach to integrate other governmental agencies into the mission This SRP explores options for reducing the obstacles associated with the stovepipe hierarchical bureaucracy of government. Research confirms that that relevant strategic leadership and thinking processes can assist the DOD planners in leveraging the expertise of interagency partners to develop holistic ways to maximize the operational art of joint planning.
