Abstract:

"On June 24, 2009, The Bush School of Government and Public Service and The Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs at Texas A & M University, and the U.S. Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute (SSI), conducted a conference on 'Leadership and Government Reform' in Washington, DC. Two panels discussed Leader Development in Schools of Public Affairs and Leadership, National Security, and 'Whole of Government' Reforms. This conference marked the fourth in a series that the Bush School has conducted with the SSI. The first, 'The Future of Transatlantic Security Relations, ' was held in 2006; the second, 'The Interagency and Counterinsurgency Warfare, ' in 2007. In March 2008, the Bush School conducted a colloquium in College Station, Texas, focused on 'Reform and the Next President's Agenda, ' which looked forward to the November 2008 election. That conference was also sponsored by the nonpartisan Project on National Security Reform, which includes retired Lieutenant General Brent Scowcroft as a member of its Guiding Coalition that originally included several key members of the Obama administration. The June 24 conference theme continued the discussion about the need for changes in leader development and whole of government reform--even more reform than the post-World War II changes accomplished by the 1947 National Security Act and the 1986 Goldwater-Nichols legislation. The chapters here examine whether and to what extent it is possible to boldly and fundamentally improve the alignment, coordination, integration, and interoperability among the government's national security agencies. The panelists and authors have reflected on the nature of external, internal, and transnational threats to U.S. security, and the needs for changes in developing people, organizations, and institutions to more effectively, efficiently, and ethically improve the U.S. Government's capacity to address the need for change. In essence, the authors in this book share the belief of many in the international and public affairs community, such as Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski, that the world is changing in fundamental ways, and our traditional models for understanding America's role do not appear to be working very well. A new era of reform is needed for this new age, in response to which the panelists, in their detailed remarks and subsequent papers, offer suggestions to reform the United States' national security system to meet 21st century threats, while simultaneously developing the leaders who can implement a serious and broad-scale reform agenda."--Foreword.
