The Sustainment Battle Staff Military Decision Making Process Mdmp Guide. Since 2004, the US Army has started a revolution of reorganization and doctrine development throughout its Combat, Combat Support and especially Combat Service Support “logistics” organizations, known as “Transformation.” In the logistics or “Sustainment” arena, the Army’s concept towards supporting other units has changed from the old “out-stockpile” the enemy concept towards a system used by modern civilian distributors – “Just-In-Time” sustainment, leaving planning and synchronizing throughput of commodities and support to the customer with little margin of error. To successfully accomplish this, Sustainment planners must thoroughly understand the Military Decision Making Process or “MDMP” for short. Conducting a Sustainment oriented MDMP is essential in integrating the Sustainment War Fighting Functional Area into the unit’s plan and for ensuring a synchronized and supportable course of action. Successful integration is a result of having the right personnel, available tools, correct MDMP methodology, and synchronized timeline throughout the process. If this guide can assist logistics’ planners in accomplishing this process, then it has accomplished its intent and mission.

The Most Dangerous Course Of Action. The American public faces an unstable landscape in the wake of 21st century terrorism. Evolutionary trends in transnational and domestic terrorism indicate a shift toward increasingly violent acts as law enforcement and intelligence agencies apply pressure to these organizations. The collapse of nation-states, the splintering of transnational terror groups and criminal enterprise along with a resurgence of domestic extremism will contribute to a new era of ultra-terrorism in which no target is off-limits. The next generation of terrorist will evolve tactics derived from the active shooter, make use of increasingly powerful explosive devices, and construct improvised weapons of mass destruction in an effort to attack our most precious vulnerabilities. Cyber-warfare techniques, once intended for use against nations, will now be directed against individuals and the national infrastructure as technology and knowledge are proliferated across international borders and telecommunications networks. Extremist groups will encourage conspiratorial rhetoric and violence through the use of social media in an effort to recruit the average citizen. The Most Dangerous Course of Action will emphasize the need to strengthen the covenant between the American citizen, the state, and the federal government in the face of an asymmetric threat. The right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” does not come without a duty to maintain a state of informed preparedness, an awareness of community responsibilities as they apply to disaster management and an active involvement with the existing homeland security apparatus.

On Purposeful Systems. This book provides an innovative foundation for looking at human and social behavior as a system of purposeful (teleological) events. It uses a systems theoretical approach for the study of these phenomena, and illustrates and extends general systems theory. Part One develops the concepts of traditional mechanism from which, successively, the concepts of "function," "choice," "goal-seeking," and "purposefulness" are derived, leading to a quantitative formulation of "personality". Part Two provides an analysis of aspects of purposeful behavior and personality, and Part Three explores the interaction of purposeful systems. Part Four is concerned with the study of social groups and ideal-seeking behavior. Finally, structural concepts underpinning the theoretical system are redefined in technological terms, thus demonstrating the non-vicious circularity and interdependence of all scientific concepts. "What makes this book magical' is that Ackoff provides operational definitions' for many ill-defined words and concepts--from defining knowledge' and understanding' to providing definitions of feelings/emotions.... In terms of Kuhn's idea of paradigm shifts'--this book represents a shift that has yet to be appreciated, thirty years later." --W. Curtiss Priest, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Russell L.
