The joint design of the future force has been, and continues to be, a significant challenge for Defence. This paper presents a review of the Australian joint approach to the planning and conduct of operations, the management of the current ADF, and the design and building of the future force. And along the way we make a number of suggestions for enhancing joint force design, most notably, that it is necessary to establish an effective, permanent and well-resourced joint force design team to ensure that improvement is achieved throughout the force design process. Furthermore, force design improvement requires a Defence joint force design culture, where the focus is on decision-making through a joint and integrated lens.
