Programmatic Integration of Cyber into the Institutional Domain of Leader Development [open pdf - 12MB]
"This thesis will assess the institutional domain of leader development in relation to cyberspace education and the implications of poorly integrating cyberspace into leader development. Cyberspace plays an integral role in communications, information, electricity, economics, and our nation's defense. Cyberspace is a great opportunity but it is also a threat. Cybersecurity is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation, but one that we as a government or as a country are not adequately prepared to counter. A cross case comparative analysis was used to identify what cyber leader development the Army's Training and Doctrine Command is currently implementing within Army learning institutions, and compare that emerging program to historical cases of other leader development programs created in response to technologies that changed how the Army developed its leaders in the past. The examination of curriculum from Army learning institutions like the Officer Basic Courses, Captains' Career Courses, Intermediate Level Education, and Pre-Command Courses showed that cyberspace has been integrated into Army education to the awareness level only."
