Strategy research project

Pagination or Media Count:
In direct response to the attacks on September 11, 2011, U.S. Customs and Border Protection CBP has stood as Americas guardians. More than 58,000 men and women have shouldered the monumental responsibility of securing Americas borders, protecting the American public against terrorists and fostering economic security through facilitating and securing legitimate trade. In the face of a tighter fiscal reality, an increasingly youthful and inexperienced work force and an aging senior leadership corps readying for retirement, leadership development has never been more important. This strategy research paper will examine the current leadership development policies and programs within CBP while studying alternative proven models from successful organizations, as well as ideologies found in the most recent research of the topic in academia. The outcome of this analysis intends to provide provocative ideas to improve CBPs leadership development efforts and help assure CBP has a competent, skilled and ready corps of strategic leaders well in to the future.
