Title Interagency Education System.
Publication Date Apr 2012
Media Count 30p
Personal Author S. W. Gilland
Abstract The Interagency (IA) education system remains ad hoc, inefficient, and sometimes ineffective. In the last decade, calls for transformation have been submitted, to include the introduction of Congressional legislation to establish programs to develop a National Security Professional who can operate effectively in the IA continuum. The Whole-of-Government (WoG) approach requires codification, institutional education and training, and most importantly, a cultural paradigm shift. More times than not, the interagency process is driven by key personalities who build ad hoc organizations with representatives of multiple agencies/departments to solve complex problems. Why does the U.S. Government continue to operate in this manner. To implement change, we have to establish education and training early in individuals' careers to expose them to different organizational structures, missions, capabilities, and most importantly, cultures.
