Abstract:

Who will be our next enemy Whom will we fight in the next 20 30 years, and how can we be ready Perhaps even more importantly, how can we prepare the force to deter these fights To meet its own strategy and the demands of an uncertain global environment, the Air Force must increase its strategic agility. Fundamentally, the service must remain prepared for today s fight yet also ready itself for future conflicts. The Air Force must synchronize these two time horizons and assure that its forces are capable of meeting a myriad of future threats. One step toward realizing greater strategic agility would involve establishing a Warfighter Integration and Innovation Branch WI2B. However, to understand why this organizational change is necessary, we must first consider the current state of the Air Force.
