Flag Officer’s Roundtable: Executive Program on Defense Decision-Making

Tally Helfont and Nick Tomb,
Senior civilian and military officials throughout the international defense, intelligence, and law enforcement communities make daily strategic decisions in defense of their countries. In doing so, they encounter many of the same institutional, political, and resourcing challenges that their colleagues from other countries face. These challenges include the ability to effectively identify threats, assign roles and missions to security institutions, develop ministry-level strategies, enhance interagency coordination, and create strategic communication campaigns that ensure whole-of-government responses to national security challenges.
