Abstract:

The nation requires reform to the antiquated processes for interagency coordination in the development and implementation of United States grand strategy. Both current and future administrations of the United States must deal with many new and emerging challenges not considered threats during the Cold War. Current threats and opportunities are more diffuse and ambiguous than in the past. This new environment necessitates the United States pursue a comprehensive or whole of government approach to the development and implementation of strategy to ensure a unity of action and synergy to meet the national objectives and goals. This requires a reexamination of its current approaches to the development of grand strategy and implementation. This paper will examine and analyze options to achieve a national whole of government approach to both development and implementation of U.S. grand strategy to ensure the nation approaches its national objectives and interests in a coordinated and synergistic method.
