Strategic Leadership and Decision Making

FOREWORD 

One of the truly unique elements of our mission here at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces (ICAF) is to develop your skills in strategic leadership and decision making.

Given that any attempt at predicting the precise nature of the future world environment is bound to be exactly wrong, we at ICAF are instead focusing our attention on providing you with the necessary skills to enable you to perform as senior-level leaders in an uncertain future world. Strategic Leadership and Decision Making will provide a rare opportunity to concentrate on organizational challenges characterized by resource constraints and continuous changes that occur at an accelerated pace.

The decision making process that you refine during your time at ICAF will prove to be an invaluable instrument in your tool box as you move up the leadership ladder, whether in the military, the federal civilian workforce, or the private sector.

Once again, permit me to congratulate you on your selection to attend the Industrial College of the Armed Forces. My colleagues and I hope you will find this professional development experience to be truly worthwhile.

 

John S. Cowings
Major General, U.S. Army
Commandant, Industrial
College of the Armed Forces
