Strategic Shift: Appraising Recent Changes to US Defense Plans and Priorities
by Richard L. Kugler and Linton Wells II
This paper evaluates major changes announced in US defense plans and priorities through high-level Department of Defense guidance released during 2012. Collectively, these documents lay out an ambitious and demanding set of changes across three broad areas: political-military, opeational concepts, and force structure. They aim for an important strategic rebalancing in the defense component of US national security strategy, driven by an unpredictable, complex and dangerous environment with accelerating rates of political and technological change, as well as fiscal constraints.

The US Government cannot rely indefinitely on crisis management, no matter how adroit. We must get ahead of events or risk being overtaken by them. That will only be possible by upgrading our legacy systems of management to meet today’s unique brand of accelerating and complex challenges. Anticipatory Governance Practical Upgrades, by Leon Fuerth and Evan Faber seeks to address this need with upgrades to existing systems in the Executive Branch.
