MetadataShow full item record
This report describes the political environment which spurred Australia to revise its national strategy and commission the DIBB Review. Paul Dibb's strategic logic and proposed changes for the Australian Defense Force are outlined. The views of his strongest critics are provided. The three year progress of the reorganization of the Australian Defense Force is detailed and includes comment of the major political and economic obstacles delaying some of Dibb's proposed changes. Based on the overall success of Australia's Dibb Report and the inability of U.S. military and political bodies to revise the national strategy, this report argues that the most important lesson to be learned from AUstralia's experience is the use of a carefully chosen, independent commission tasked to review and revise the national strategy. Keywords: Strategic planning; Long range planning. (AW)
