The Puzzle of National Security Planning for the Whole of Government
This chapter examines the challenges in planning and implementing government-wide reforms and Whole of Government replacements in particular. The author looks specifically at ambiguities in the planning, organizational and structural frictions, and coordination failures that undermined integration attempts during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Discussing a range of proposals for alleviating these problems, she concludes that any sustainable solution requires a broad-based government consensus and enforcement from above at the presidential and/or congressional level. In her view, proponency, advocacy, and leadership are necessities for success.
