Chairmen Joint Chiefs of Staff's Leadership using the Joint Strategic Planning System in the 1990's
Recommendations for Strategic Leaders
This monograph examines how the three Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff adapted and used the Joint Strategic Planning System from 1990 to 2000 to provide advice to the US secretary of defense and to the president. This strategic planning system is the primary means by which the Chairman executes his statutory responsibilities as specified by the US Congress. Understanding this strategic planning system's evolution, reviewing its processes, and examining its products gives one insight into how the three Chairmen provided direction that shaped the military to respond to the rapidly changing strategic environment of the 1990s.
