The Defense Acquisition Review Journal ARJ is a scholarly peer-reviewed journal published by the Defense Acquisition University DAU. from where it may come. The current issue of Defense ARJ is themed Managing the Unknown. The concept is of course not new. Norman Augustine, in his classic 1982 book Augustines Laws, famously stated that two types of uncertainty plague most efforts to introduce major new products known-unknowns and unknownunknowns Augustine, 1982, pp. 49-50. The five articles in the current issue address some aspect of managing the unknown--whether risk, accelerating technology, or managing economic and environmental influences--all examine and embrace the uncertainty inherent in large, complex programs.
