Abstract:

Americas Airmen are amazing. Even after more than two decades of nonstop combat operations, they continue to rise to every challenge put before them. I wish I could say that things are about to get easier, but I cannot because the dominant trends point to a complex future that will challenge us in new and demanding ways. Adversaries are emerging in all shapes and sizes, and the pace of technological and societal change is increasing with a corresponding increase in the demand for air, space, and cyber power. In this context, senior Air Force leaders realize we need a single, integrated strategy to focus the way our service organizes, trains, and equips the force to conduct future operations. We need a strategy that points the way forward and does not limit us to an intractable view of the future one that is actionable, with clear goals and vectors that are implementable, assessable, and revisable. This article describes that strategy the new Air Force strategic framework for strategy-driven resourcing.
