Abstract:

Predicated upon an environment of fiscal restraint and stewardship, the Air Force enterprise will be required to leverage synergies through transformation. Air Force Reserve Command AFRC potentially proves to be a highly cost effective solution, especially through the venue of Total Force Initiative TFI. Yet, examining the cultural premises and educational requirements of TFI yields intriguing results mainly that TFI-related education is fundamentally lacking. This paper proposes possible remedies as well as relevant topics that AFRC leadership should consider when refining its vision and mission. AFRC should entertain a litany of strategically introspective questions focusing on utilization of the continuum of service, career cross-pollination, the creation of a strategic initiative group, and empowering and developing a culture based on leadership. As with any strategic level organizational transformation, success and failure hinge upon the lynchpin of leadership to imbue and endorse the change. Hence, fostering cross-culturally savvy leadership with coup d oiel is quintessential to success. The subject matter of this paper can be levied as a proposed CORONA topic from AFRC.
