ABSTRACT

DoD Acquisition and Logistics Excellence Week Kickoff--Bureaucracy to Battlefield   [open pdf - 37KB]

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld gave a speech at the Pentagon in which he described Pentagon bureaucracy as an enemy of the United States. The Secretary says the "challenge is to transform not just the way we deter and defend, but the way we conduct our daily business". The secretary describes the need for this change because "the world has--and we have not yet changed sufficiently. The clearest and most important transformation is from a bipolar Cold War world where threats were visible and predictable, to one in which they arise from multiple sources, most of which are difficult to anticipate, and many of which are impossible even to know today."
