MetadataShow full item record
The intensification of the Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine, the conduct of military operations in the South-East region of the state, and the need for immediate defense reforms are among top state priorities for the Ukrainian government. The creation of the modern Ukrainian Army should be a product of a reformed defense planning system. Previous unsuccessful attempts at defense planning need to be acknowledged and not replicated. It is time for the Ukrainian defense institution to rid itself of Communist legacy concepts and adopt Western ones. The purpose of this research is to outline the key aspects of the problem of the existing defense planning and force management systems and define how they must, and can be, fundamentally reformed. In this effort, time is spent considering the utility of defense review to achieving this end via the identification of its strengths and pitfalls, to describe necessary changes of the existing legislation framework of defense planning and the need for corresponding changes in military institution, to analyze existing defense programs and suggest their restructuring for project management, and to ascertain how the now largely ignored IAS Resource could be used successfully in the future to support these objectives.
