Army budget points toward multi-domain operations

Washington Technology, May 12, 2017

The Army will likely receive more funding from Congress in the coming years. And there’s a good chance that money will go towards ensuring proper staffing, training and equipment, instead of modernization. Despite its large operating budget, the Army still allocates smaller percentages for its research, development, test and engineering (RDT&E) budget than other service branches, and as a result, it has struggled when it comes to modernization.

Building Credibility

Army AL&T, May 08, 2017

Credibility gives authority and brings trust; it is the reward of good decisions, the product of consistent results and the currency that every leader deals in. If a program manager (PM) has credibility, people trust them to do what they say and then give the time, resources and the leadership support to do it. The opposite is also true. Indeed, as now-retired Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal noted, “Credibility equals freedom of action.” Credibility is especially key in the world of acquisition, where trust equals money, and a breach of trust can send an effort spiraling into a morass of bureaucratic red tape. Once a PM establishes credibility, oversight and controls will begin to loosen. The PM will begin breezing through potentially contentious briefings, will get calls in September at the end of the fiscal year asking if the PM can use a few million residual dollars, and overall more work will flow in their direction. These are just some of the positive effects of credibility. So how does a PM establish and maintain credibility? It’s a mix of character and action. When building your project plan, some actions produce far more credibility than others.
