Due to the strategic advances of our adversaries and the fiscal constraints in the last decade, Air Force and Department of Defense (DoD) senior leadership have made calls for critical thinking. The 2018 National Defense Strategy also states that the United States must change the way it does business to maintain its competitive advantage. Changing the bureaucratic stagnation in the DoD will require a new way of thinking, and thinking about our thinking. The purpose of this thesis is to explore why critical thinking is significant by identifying some gaps in the way the DoD educates and by conducting elements of a comparative analysis of critical thinking, strategic thinking, and entrepreneurial thinking. Using the findings, elements of a module curriculum will be created that grants the DoD workforce a framework to approach problems in new ways. .
