“If you don’t like change, you’re going to like irrelevance even less.”—General Eric Shinseki, Chief of Staff, U. S. Army

Sequenom/David Ewing Duncan/Wired11.02“Sequenom has industrialized the SNP [single nucleotide polymorphisms] identification process.” “This, I’m told, is the first time a healthy human has ever been screened for the full gamut of genetic-disease markers.” “On the horizon: multi-disease gene kits, available at Wal*Mart, as easy to use as home-pregnancy tests.” “You can’t look at humanity separate from machines; we’re so intertwined we’re almost the same species, and the difference is getting smaller.”

slide4

“There will be more confusion in the business world in the next decadethan in any decade in history. And the current pace of change will only accelerate.”Steve Case

slide5

“IT MAY SOMEDAY BE SAID THAT THE 21ST CENTURY BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. …“Al-Qaeda represents a new and profoundly dangerous kind of organization—one that might be called a ‘virtual state.’ On September 11 a virtual state proved that modern societies are vulnerable as never before.”—Time/09.09.2002

slide6

“The deadliest strength of America’s new adversaries is their very fluidity, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld believes. Terrorist networks, unburdened by fixed borders, headquarters or conventional forces, are free to study the way this nation responds to threats and adapt themselves to prepare for what Mr. Rumsfeld is certain will be another attack. …“ ‘Business as usual won’t do it,’ he said. His answer is to develop swifter, more lethal ways to fight. ‘Big institutions aren’t swift on their feet in adapting but rather ponderous and clumsy and slow.’ ”—The New York Times/09.04.2002

slide8

“Our military structure today is essentially one developed and designed by Napoleon.”Admiral Bill Owens, former Vice Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

slide9

“The organizations we created have become tyrants. They have taken control, holding us fettered, creating barriers that hinder rather than help our businesses. The lines that we drew on our neat organizational diagrams have turned into walls that no one can scale or penetrate or even peer over.”—Frank Lekanne Deprez & René Tissen, Zero Space: Moving Beyond Organizational Limits.

slide10

“In an era when terrorists use satellite phones and encrypted email,US gatekeepers stand armed against them with pencils and paperwork, and archaic computer systems that don’t talk to each other.”Boston Globe (09.30.2001)

slide11

“Dawn Meyerreicks, CTO of the Defense Intelligence Systems Agency, made one of the most fateful military calls of the 21st century. After 9/11 … her office quickly leased all the available transponders covering Central Asia. The implications should change everything about U.S. military thinking in the years ahead. “The U.S. Air Force had kicked off its fight against the Taliban with an ineffective bombing campaign, and Washington was anguishing over whether to send in a few Army divisions. Donald Rumsfeld told Gen. Tommy Franks to give the initiative to 250 Special Forces already on the ground. They used satellite phones, Predator surveillance drones, and GPS- and laser-based targeting systems to make the air strikes brutally effective.“In effect, they ‘Napsterized’ the battlefield by cutting out the middlemen (much of the military’s command and control) and working directly with the real players. … The data came in so fast that HQ revised operating procedures to allow intelligence analysts and attack planners to work directly together. Their favorite tool, incidentally, was instant messaging over a secure network.”—Ned Desmond/“Broadband’s New Killer App”/Business 2.0/ OCT2002

slide12

“If early soldiers idealized Napoleon or Patton, network-centric warriors admire Wal*Mart,where point-of-sale-scanners share information on a near real-time basis with suppliers and also produce data that is mined to help leaders develop new strategic or tactical plans. Wal*Mart is an example of translating information into competitive advantage.”—Tom Stewart, Business 2.0

“Doctors are faced with the very real threat of irrelevance in ten years. You’ll go to a lab, have a blood sample drawn, and a readout of your genetic deficiencies will be produced—along with ‘Doctor’s Orders’ for appropriate treatment; only there won’t be any doctor.”—Leading Pediatric Cardiologist (11.2002)

Forbes100 from 1917 to 1987: 39 members of the Class of ’17 were alive in ’87; 18 in ’87 F100; 18 F100 “survivors” underperformed the market by 20%; just 2 (2%), GE & Kodak, outperformed the market 1917 to 1987.S&P 500 from 1957 to 1997: 74 members of the Class of ’57 were alive in ’97; 12 (2.4%) of 500 outperformed the market from 1957 to 1997.Source: Dick Foster & Sarah Kaplan, Creative Destruction: Why Companies That Are Built to Last Underperform the Market

slide36

“Mr. Foster and his McKinsey colleagues collected detailed performance data stretching back 40 years for 1,000 U.S. companies. They found that none of the long-term survivors managed to outperform the market. Worse, the longer companies had been in the database, the worse they did.”—Financial Times/11.28.2002

slide37

“Good management was the most powerful reason [leading firms] failed to stay atop their industries.Precisely because these firms listened to their customers, invested aggressively in technologies that would provide their customers more and better products of the sort they wanted, and because they carefully studied market trends and systematically allocated investment capital to innovations that promised the best returns, they lost their positions of leadership.”Clayton Christensen, The Innovator’s Dilemma

slide39

“When asked to name just one big merger that had lived up to expectations, Leon Cooperman, former cochairman of Goldman Sachs’ Investment Policy Committee, answered:I’m sure there are success stories out there, but at this moment I draw a blank.”Mark Sirower, The Synergy Trap

slide41

“I believe large research organizations are less transparent, with less communication and more bureaucracy and it is more difficult and problematic to produce innovations in large institutions.”—Franz Humer, CEO, Roche

slide44
“Acquisitions are about buying market share. Our challenge is to create markets. There is a big difference.” Peter Job, CEO, Reuters
slide45

“Active mutators in placid times tend to die off. They are selected against. Reluctant mutators in quickly changing times are also selected against.”Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan,Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

slide46

Lessons from the Bees!“Since merger mania is now the rage, what lessons can the bees teach us? A simple one: Merging is not in nature. [Nature’s] process is the exact opposite: one of growth, fragmentation and dispersal. There is no megalomania, no merging for merging’s sake. The point is that unlike corporations, which just get bigger, bee colonies know when the time has come to split up into smaller colonies which can grow value faster. What the bees are telling us is that the corporate world has got it all wrong.”David Lascelles, Co-director of The Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation [UK]

slide47

TP on Acquisitions1. Big + Big = Disaster. (Statistically.) (There are exceptions; e.g., Citigroup.)2. Big (GE, Cisco, Omnicon) acquires small/specialist = Good … if you can retain Top Talent.3. Odds on achieving “projected synergies” among Mixed Big “cultures”: 10%.4. Max Scale Advantages are achieved at a smaller size than imagined.5. Attacked by Big, Mediocre Medium marries Mediocre Medium to “bulk up.” Result: Big Mediocrity … or worse.6. Any size—if Great & Focused—can win, locally or globally.7. Increasingly, Alliances deliver more value than mergers —and clearly abet flexibility.

“Rose gardeners face a choice every spring: how to prune our roses. The long-term fate of a rose garden depends on this decision. If you want to have the largest and most glorious roses of the neighborhood, you will prune hard. You will reduce each rose plant to a maximum of three stems. This represents a policy of low tolerance and tight control. You force the plant to make the maximum use of its available resources, by putting them into the the rose’s ‘core business.’ However, if this is an unlucky year [late frost, deer, green-fly invasion], you may lose the main stems or the whole plant! Pruning hard is a dangerous policy in an unpredictable environment. Thus, if you are in a spot where you know nature may play tricks on you, you may opt for a policy of high tolerance. You will leave more stems on the plant. You will never have the biggest roses, but you have a much-enhanced chance of having roses every year. You will achieve a gradual renewal of the plant. In short, tolerant pruning achieves two ends: (1) It makes it easier to cope with unexpected environmental changes.(2) It leads to a continuous restructuring of the plant. The policy of tolerance admittedly wastes resources—the extra buds drain away nutrients from the main stem. But in an unpredictable environment, this policy of tolerance makes the rose healthier. Tolerance of internal weakness, ironically, allows the rose to be stronger in the long run.”—Arie De Geus, The Living Company

Japan’s Science Gap *Rice farming culture: uniqueness suppressed. Gov’t control of R & D. Promotion based on seniority. Consensus vs. debate. (U.S.: friends can be mortal enemies.) Bias for C.I. vs. “bold leaps.” Lack of competition and critical evaluation (peer review).

“But what if [former head of strategic planning at Royal Dutch Shell] Arie De Geus is wrong in suggesting, in The Living Company, that firms should aspire to live forever? Greatness is fleeting and, for corporations, it will become ever more fleeting. The ultimate aim of a business organization, an artist, an athlete or a stockbroker may be to explode in a dramatic frenzy of value creation during a short space of time, rather than to live forever.”Kjell Nordström and Jonas Ridderstråle,Funky Business

slide71

Built to Last v. Built to Flip“The problem with Built to Last is that it’s a romantic notion. Large companies are incapable of ongoing innovation, of ongoing flexibility.”“Increasingly, successful businesses will be ephemeral. They will be built to yield something of value – and once that value has been exhausted, they will vanish.”Fast Company (03-00)

“The corporation as we know it, which is now 120 years old, isnot likely to survive the next 25 years.Legally and financially, yes, but not structurally and economically.”Peter Drucker, Business 2.0 (08.00)

slide77

“The difficulties … arise from the inherent conflict between the need to control existing operations and the need to create the kind of environment that will permit new ideas to flourish—and old ones to die a timely death. … We believe that most corporations will find it impossible to match or outperform the market without abandoning the assumption of continuity. … The current apocalypse—the transition from a state of continuity to state of discontinuity—Has the same suddenness [as the trauma that beset civilization in 1000 A.D.]” Richard Foster & Sarah Kaplan, “Creative Destruction” (The McKinsey Quarterly)

“Suppose—just suppose—that the Web is a new world we’re just beginning to inhabit. We’re like the earlier European settlers in the United States, living on the edge of the forest. We don’t know what’s there and we don’t know exactly what we need to do to find out: Do we pack mountain climbing gear, desert wear, canoes, or all three? Of course while the settlers may not have known what the geography of the New World was going to be, they at least knew that there was a geography. The Web, on the other hand, has no geography, no landscape. It has no distance. It has nothing natural in it. It has few rules of behavior and fewer lines of authority. Common sense doesn’t hold here, and uncommon sense hasn’t yet emerged.” David Weinberger, Small Pieces Loosely Joined

THE BASE CASE: I am a design fanatic. Though not “artistic,” I love “cool stuff.” But it goes [much] further, far beyond the personal. Design has become a professional obsession. I SIMPLY BELIEVE THAT DESIGN PER SE IS THE PRINCIPAL REASON FOR EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT [or detachment] RELATIVE TO A PRODUCT OR SERVICE OR EXPERIENCE. Design, as I see it, is arguably the #1 DETERMINANT of whether a product-service-experience stands out … or doesn’t. Furthermore, it’s another “one of those things” that damn few companies put – consistently – on the front burner.

It is about fulfilling our potential … not about a new logo, no matter how clever. WHAT IS MY MISSION IN LIFE?WHAT DO I WANT TO CONVEY TO PEOPLE?HOW DO I MAKE SURE THAT WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER THE WORLD IS ACTUALLY UNIQUE? The brand has to give of itself, the company has to give of itself, the management has to give of itself. To put it bluntly, it is a matter of whether – or not – you want to be … UNIQUE … NOW.”Jesper Kunde, Unique now … or never

“We are in the twilight of a society based on data. As information and intelligence become the domain of computers, society will place more value on the one human ability that cannot be automated: emotion. Imagination, myth, ritual - the language of emotion - will affect everything from our purchasing decisions to how we work with others.Companies will thrive on the basis of their stories and myths.Companies will need to understand that their products are less important than their stories.”Rolf Jensen, Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies

The Sales25: Great Salespeople …1. Know the product. (Find cool mentors, and use them.)2. Know the company.3. Know the customer. (Including the customer’s consultants.) (And especially the “corporate culture.”)4. Love internal politics at home and abroad.5. Religiously respect competitors. (No badmouthing, no matter how provoked.)6. Wire the customer’s org.(Relationships at all levels & functions.)7. Wire the home team’s org. and vendors’ orgs.(INVEST Big Time time in relationships at all levels & functions.) (Take junior people in all functions to client meetings.)

slide395

Great Salespeople …8. Never overpromise.(Even if it costs you your job.)9. Sell only by solving problems-creating profitable opportunities.(“Our product solves these problems, creates these unimagined INCREDIBLE opportunities, and will make you a ton of money—here’s exactly how.”) (IS THIS A “PRODUCT SALE” OR A WOW-ORIGINAL SOLUTION YOU’LL BE DINING OFF 5 YEARS FROM NOW? THAT WILL BE WRITTEN UP IN THE TRADE PRESS?)10. Will involve anybody—including mortal enemies—if it enhances the scope of the problem we can solve and increases the scope of the opportunity we can encompass.11. Know the Brand Story cold; live the Brand Story. (If not, leave.)

slide396

Great Salespeople …12. Think “Turnkey.” (It’s always your problem!)13. Act as “orchestra conductor”: You are responsible for making the whole-damn-network respond. (PERIOD.)14. Help the customer get to know the vendor’s organization & build up their Rolodex.15. Walk away from bad business.(Even if it gets you fired.)16. Understand the idea of a “good loss.”(A bold effort that’s sometimes better than a lousy win.)17. Think those who regularly say “It’s all a price issue” suffer from rampant immaturity & shrunken imagination.18. Will not give away the store to get a foot in the door. 19. Are wary & respectful of upstarts—the real enemy.20. Seek several “cool customers”—who’ll drag you into Tomorrowland.

slide397

Great Salespeople …21. Use the word “partnership” obsessively, even though it is way overused.(“Partnership” includes folks at all levels throughout the supply chain.)22. Send thank you notes by the truckload.(NOT E-NOTES.) (Most are for “little things.”) (50% of those notes are sent to those in our company!) Remember birthdays. Use the word “we.” 23. When you look across the table at the customer, think religiously to yourself: “HOW CAN I MAKE THIS DUDE RICH & FAMOUS & GET HIM-HER PROMOTED?” 24. Great salespeople can affirmatively respond to the query in an HP banner ad: HAVE YOU CHANGED CIVILIZATION TODAY?25. Keep your bloody PowerPoint slides simple!

Yet the percentage of women decreased with step up the career ladder. … Most women weren’t leaving to raise families; they had weighed their options in Deloitte’s male-dominated culture and found them wanting.

“Chivalry is dead. The new code of conduct is an active strategy of disrupting the status quo to create an unsustainable series of competitive advantages. This is not an age of defensive castles, moats and armor. It is rather an age of cunning, speed and surprise. It may be hard for some to hang up the chain mail of ‘sustainable advantage’ after so many battles. But hypercompetition, a state in which sustainable advantages are no longer possible, is now the only level of competition.”Rich D’Aveni, Hypercompetition: Managing the Dynamics of Strategic Maneuvering

“HAVE MBAs KILLED OFF MARKETING? Prof Rajeev Batra says: ‘What these times call for is more creative and breakthrough reengineering of product and service benefits, but we don’t train people to think like that.’ The way marketing is taught across business schools is far too analytical and data-driven. ‘We’ve taken away the emphasis on creativity and big ideas that characterize real marketing breakthroughs.’ In India there is an added problem: most senior marketing jobs have been traditionally dominated by MBAs. Santosh Desai, vice president, McCann Erickson, an MBA himself, believes in India engineer-MBAs, armed with this Lego-like approach, tend to reduce marketing into neat components. ‘This reductionist thinking runs counter to the idea that great brands must have a core, unifying idea.’ ”—Businessworld/04Nov2002/“Why Is Marketing Not Working?”

WEIRD IDEAS THAT WORK: (1) Hire slow learners (of the organizational code). (1.5) Hire people who make you uncomfortable, even those you dislike. (2) Hire people you (probably) don’t need. (3) Use job interviews to get ideas, not to screen candidates. (4) Encourage people to ignore and defy superiors and peers. (5) Find some happy people and get them to fight. (6) Reward success and failure, punish inaction. (7) Decide to do something that will probably fail, then convince yourself and everyone else that success is certain. (8) Think of some ridiculous, impractical things to do, then do them. (9) Avoid, distract, and bore customers, critics, and anyone who just wants to talk about money. (10) Don’t try to learn anything from people who seem to have solved the problems you face. (11) Forget the past, particularly your company’s success.

“My wife and I went to a [kindergarten] parent-teacher conference and were informed that our budding refrigerator artist, Christopher, would be receiving a grade of Unsatisfactory in art. We were shocked. How could any child—let alone our child—receive a poor grade in art at such a young age?His teacher informed us that he had refused to color within the lines, which was a state requirement for demonstrating ‘grade-level motor skills.’ ”Jordan Ayan, AHA!

slide578

“How many artists are there in the room? Would you please raise your hands. FIRST GRADE: En masse the children leapt from their seats, arms waving. Every child was an artist. SECOND GRADE: About half the kids raised their hands, shoulder high, no higher. The hands were still. THIRD GRADE: At best, 10 kids out of 30 would raise a hand, tentatively, self-consciously. By the time I reached SIXTH GRADE, no more than one or two kids raised their hands, and then ever so slightly, betraying a fear of being identified by the group as a ‘closet artist.’ The point is: Every school I visited was participating in the suppression of creative genius.”Gordon MacKenzie, Orbiting the Giant Hairball: A Corporate Fool’s Guide to Surviving with Grace

Schools’ “Kafka-like rituals”: “enforce sensory deprivation on classes of children held in featureless rooms … sort children into rigid categories by the use of fantastic measures such as age-grading, or standardized test scores … train children to drop whatever they are occupied with and to move as a body from room to room at the sound of a bell, buzzer, horn, or klaxon … keep children under constant surveillance, depriving them of private time and space …John Taylor Gatto, A Different Kind of Teacher

slide581

Kafka-like rituals (cont.): “assign children numbers constantly, feigning the ability to discriminate qualities quantitatively … insist that every moment of time be filled with low-level abstractions… forbid children their own discoveries, pretending to possess some vital secret to which children must surrender their active learning time to acquire.”John Taylor Gatto, A Different Kind of Teacher

Education3MLearning is a normal state.Children are learnavores.Prodigious feats of learning are common as dirt. [Watch an H.S. QB studying game film.]We learn at different rates.We learn in different ways.Boys and girls learn [very] differently.In a class of 25, there are 25 different trajectories.Learning in 40-minutes blocks is bullshit.Learning for tests is utterly insane.There are numerous rigorous evaluation schemes, of which testing is but one—and abnormal, by “real world” standards.

Education3M“All this”—the right stuff—fits the NWW/New World of Work hand-in-glove. [NWW = Age of Creativity.]U.S. schools circa 2001 are a vestige of the Prussian-Fordist model, more interested in shaping behavior than stoking the fires of lifelong learning.Cutting art-music budgets is truly dumb.Learning is a matter of Intensity of Engagement, not elapsed time. [Aargh: 11 minutes on the Battle of Gettysburg.]Teachers need enough space-time-flexibility to get to know kids as individuals.Scientific discovery processes and the teaching of science are utterly at odds. [Exploration vs. spoon-feeding.]

slide590

Education3MOur toughest “learning achievement”—mastering our native language—does not require schools, or even competent parents. [It does require a desperate need-to-know.]Great teachers are great learners, not imparters-of-knowledge.Great teachers ask great questions—that launch kids on lifelong quests.The world is not about “right” & “wrong” answers; it is about the pursuit of increasingly sophisticated questions—just ask a ski instructor or neurosurgeon.

slide591

Education3MMost schools spend most of their time setting up contexts in which kids learn not to like particular subjects.[Evidence shows that such anti-learning sticks!]Vigorous exploration is normal … until you are incarcerated in a school.“Bite size” education-learning is neither education nor learning.Learning takes place rapidly on the cheerleading squad, the football team, the school newspaper, the drama club, at the after-class job--just not in the hyper-structured classroom.

slide592

Education3MThe “school reform” “movement” is a giant step … backwards … embracing the Prussian-Fordist paradigm with renewed vigor—at exactly the wrong time.There are large numbers of superb schools, superb principals, superb teachers; sadly, they not only fail to infect the [largely timid] rest, but are ordinarily supplanted by wusses & wimps.Alas, the teaching profession does not ordinarily attract “cool dudes & dudettes.”Schools of “education” should by and large have their charters revoked.

slide593

Education3MStability is dead; “education” must therefore “educate” for an unknowable, ambiguous, changing future; thence, learning to learn & change is far more important than mastery of a static body of “facts.”“Education” must “develop in youth the capabilities for engaging in intense concentrated involvement in an activity.” [James Coleman, 1974.] [Hint: It doesn’t.] [Hint: Understatement.]

Ye gads: “Thomas Stanley has not only found no correlation between success in school and an ability to accumulate wealth, he’s actually found a negative correlation. ‘It seems that school-related evaluations are poor predictors of economic success,’ Stanley concluded. What did predict success was a willingness to take risks. Yet the success-failure standards of most schools penalized risk takers. Most educational systems reward those who play it safe. As a result, those who do well in school find it hard to take risks later on.”Richard Farson & Ralph Keyes, Whoever Who Makes the Most Mistakes Wins

HealthCare21: 21 Ideas for Century211. Hospitals kill people. (And many of those they don’t kill, they wound.) (And they deny it.) (ERRORS RULE!) And: Hustling ambulances kill pedestrians—and don’t save patients.2. Doctors are spoiled brats—who don’t like measurements. Or any form of “interference.” Docs are also cover-up artists. The REAL Hippocratic Oath: “DON’T RAT ON A FELLOW DOC”. 3. Most prescription drugs don’t work—for a PARTICULAR patient. Current drugs = Blunderbusses.4. Think … WELLNESS. Think … PREVENTION.5. THERE IS LITTLE “SCIENCE” IN “MEDICINE.” (See state to state variations … country to country variations … the general lack of agreed upon treatments.)6. You could save thousands of lives (think Schlindler)—if you just outlawed handwritten prescriptions.7. “Detailers” will disappear … when GenX docs arrive.

slide662

HealthCare21 (Cont.)8. IS/IT in hospitals is sub-primitive (despite enormous expenditures).9. Systemic IS/IT is worse—links between docs, insurers, providers, patients.10. ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS …TO UNIFORM STANDARDS. (NOW.) (PLEASE.) 11. THE WEB WILL LIBERATE. (Info = Power.) (BELIEVE IT.) 12. 80M BOOMERS RULE. ($$$$$. Desire for c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e CONTROL. NOW. “LEADERSHIP” OF AGING PROCESS.)13. “Drug Discovery” processes at Big Pharma are … hopelessly over-complicated. (???: Bye Bye … Big Pharma.)14. 90% of the “healthcare fix”: HARVEST THE LOW-HANGING FRUIT. “They” are … NOT … the Enemy. “I have seen the enemy … and it am me.” Damn it.

slide663

HealthCare21 (Cont.)15. The number of U.S. un-insured is the nation’s #1 disgrace. That said, insured “consumers” are spoiled brats. They/we/me act as if healthcare were a free good … and believe that an incipient hangnail calls for at least a CAT scan … or two. ANSWER: MAKE US FEEL THE PAIN.16. Genetic engineering & biotech change … EVERYTHING. (Within 15 years.)17. New Medical Devices change … EVERYTHING. (Within 15 years.)18. IS/IT changes … EVERYTHING. (Within 10 years.)19. New Docs change … EVERYTHING. (Within 10 years.)20. New Patients change … EVERYTHING. (Within 5 years.) * *

“The 1990s was a decade of multiple revolutions—political, economic, technological—that changed so thoroughly the way we live that the past no longer seems a good guide to the future (in fact the past seems precisely the wrong guide). So it is in the world of military affairs. The RMA is our opportunity to use the new information technology to change the very nature of the military—in a way that could reinvigorate American political, diplomatic and economic leadership in the world for decades to come.” –Bill Owens, Lifting the Fog of War

slide686

“Our military is very good at doing things as they are supposed to be done, but it is not always good at changing the way things ought to be done. Highly professional militaries can be very good at maintaining the institution’s traditions, mores and cultures in the face of rapid and important change. … Equating professionalism with automatically defending the status quo can be disastrous. This is the mindset that drives service loyalties toward narrow parochialism, and congeals organizations into brittle shells. We end up ignoring opportunities that could actually offer higher military effectiveness.” –Bill Owens, Lifting the Fog of War

slide687

“How dare you. If you don’t support us, our opponents will take advantage and use this to cut the force.” –CNO staffer [Flag officer] to Bill Owens, 6th Fleet Commander

slide688

“Mike [Boorda’s] self-avowed priority was to preserve and protect the size, budget and structure of the U.S. Navy—his Navy—irrespective of any other consideration—because he deeply believed that the Navy was the core of America’s military capability. My view over the years had shifted toward the conviction that we in the Navy need to implement major changes in order to become more joint—to work better and more closely with the other services.”–Bill Owens, Lifting the Fog of War

slide689

“Many flaws remained—flaws not from poor performance, but from an ingrained command hierarchy and an outmoded concept of war that had taken root during World War II and then during the cold war. Desert Storm was a joint military operation in name rather than in fact. … The battlefield was divided among service components. … The fiefdoms existed not only because of tradition, service rivalry and the egos of the commanders; they were also there because of technological limitations. We did not have the communications capability to do it differently.” –Bill Owens, Lifting the Fog of War

slide690

“Once devised in Riyadh, the tasking order took hours to get to the Navy’s six aircraft carriers—because the Navy had failed years earlier to procure the proper communications gear that would have connected the Navy with its Air Force counterparts. … To compensate for the lack of communications capability, the Navy was forced to fly a daily cargo mission from the Persian Gulf and Red Sea to Riyadh in order to pick up a computer printout of the air mission tasking order, then fly back to the carriers, run photocopy machines at full tilt, and distribute the documents to the air wing squadrons that were planning the next strike.” –Bill Owens, Lifting the Fog of War

slide691

“By combining powerful computer technology and other modern information-based systems we could make a revitalized, leaner military force that is designed to outsee, outmaneuver and outfight any foe.”--Bill Owens, Lifting the Fog of War

“[The RMA] means creating a synergy in new weapons, sensors and communications that is made possible by the successful melding of the technological applications with an information-age military organization.” –Bill Owens, Lifting the Fog of War

“In the second half of the twentieth century a new society of individuals emerged—a breed of people unlike any the world has ever seen. Educated, informed, traveled, they work with their brains, not their bodies. They do not assume that their lives can be patterned after their parents’ or grandparents’. Throughout human history, the problem of identity was settled in one way—I am my mother’s daughter; I am my father's son. But in a discontinuous and irreversible break with the past, today’s individuals seek the experiences and insights that enable them to find the elusive pattern in the stone, the singular pattern that is ‘me.’” —Shoshana Zuboff & James Maxmin, The Support Economy
