Beyond Acquisition and Personnel – Expanding the Defense Reform Conversation

~ A #DefenseReform Event ~

Pentagon leaders and senior members of Congress have put defense reform on the agenda, but much of the debate has been limited to acquisition and personnel reform. While acquisition and personnel reform are vital, other parts of our national security infrastructure need to be reformed as well. This spirit of reform and innovation should be encouraged and embraced from the frontlines of combat to the halls of Congress and the White House Situation Room. This panel brings together a diverse group of national security professionals to talk about expanding the defense reform conversation beyond acquisition and personnel.
