Abstract
As the U.S. Government continues to post-conflict reconstruction and stabilization (R/S) around the globe, the implementation of an automated strategic planning aid is critical to future success. The objective of this program is to demonstrate the feasibility of a strategic planning framework that leverages the latest collaboration technologies to provide desktop access to R/S goals, missions and tasks. The resulting framework will also be integrated with approaches to establish priorities across a diverse range of distributed stakeholders, and provide a means to resolve differences of opinion. This innovative approach will combine new human behavior algorithms with existing software technology, to build an effective strategic planning support application. The planning framework to integrate R/S specific goals and create behavior algorithms will be built on an infrastructure initiated by investments from Missile Defense, Air Force and Navy to provide robust decision traceability during the system acquisition life cycle. The Phase I program will solidify the Phase II requirements by having selected OSD, S/CRS and multi-national stakeholders and analysts interact with the proof-of-concept graphical user interface (GUI)and supporting database structure to conduct actual strategic planning activities. The Phase II program will fully develop a prototype tool and validate its operation and use concept.
