GSF 2017: Is Strategy Dead?

November 7, 2017 • 11:00 am – 12:15 pm EST

Main Agenda - Global Security Forum 2017

Is Strategy Dead?

The purpose of this panel is to explore the widening gap between defense strategy and the resources available and to discuss how it can be reconciled. The panelists will be asked to provide thoughts on whether they believe there is a strategy-resource mismatch, how it can be bridged, and if developing and implementing a strategy is still possible in our current political climate. The panel will include a full perspective of views on defense strategy and the budget.
