Consider this January 31st posting by Michael M. Dunn, President/CEO of the Air Force Association; spend three minutes considering how your company’s value proposition supports the IC in these events. The world is constantly changing. What is your contribution to making the IC agencies better in their specific mission, given this list of potential or outright threats?
Michael Dunn comments: The point of above … is, very simply, that … except possibly for the last item, no one predicted that these items would occur when they did. Most have looked optimistically at Afghanistan and definitely stated that all conflicts of the future would resemble the counter insurgency on-going in Afghanistan. It doesn’t take much for any of you to posit scenarios based on any of the events above. That is why we have argued that we must have a strong military – one that is trained and ready across the spectrum on conflict. We can’t wait for conflict to be imminent before we start to build up our forces and their equipment.
Discussion Question: Is it realistic to map your company’s capabilities to the current news affecting the IC?
