Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has unveiled six areas of focus for a Pentagon-wide reform effort as part of budget and strategic planning, Defense News reported Tuesday.
Marcus Weisgerber writes the department aims to redefine its guidelines for troop deployment, training and weapons acquisition.
Other domains for potential reform include institutional reform, military readiness, capacity and compensation policy, Weisgerber reports.
Hagel told an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies event Tuesday these priorities will dictate DoD budget and strategic planning in the coming years.
“The goal is to ensure they better reflect our goals in the shifting strategic environment, the evolving capacity of our allies and partners, real-world threats and the new military capabilities that reside in our force and in the hands of our potential adversaries,” Hagel said.
