The Project on National Security Reform was created by the U.S. Congress to "ultimately produce recommendations on changes to the National Security Act of 1947 and its subsequent amendments, presidential directives to implement reforms, and new Congressional committee structures and practices." Its first overall study Forging A new Shield, was released to The President of the United States, the Preseident-elect and Congress on 2 December 2008.
For nearly six years, the Vision Working Group of the Project on National Security Reform in the United States has been exploring improved methods that the U.S. government should develop and use in its decision-making processes in the Executive office of the President. Leading the Vision Working Group of the Project, Dr. Ronis will share much of the efforts that supported the Project's research and analysis and the process we used including the use of scenarios.
This presentation will discuss the Vision Working Group's trial of several foresight processes. These include the developement of nine scenarios representing a fifty year period that were used to stress test the overall findings of the Project on National Security Reform that were presented to the Congress and the President of the United States.
