Defence as a Whole Force - 24 June 2021Show content
The session will examine the development and implementation of the commitment to viewing Defence as a Whole Force comprising regular and reserve Service personnel, civil servants and external partners.
In future this may also include technology such as AI and Machine Learning.
It will look at the way this is being applied today, and the challenges in enabling the Whole Force to live up to its potential.
These challenges include important questions of terms and conditions of employment, training etc, but perhaps more significant are the conceptual and psychological challenges in building a single workforce from disparate parts that have to trust each other.
The talk will be given by Paul O’Neill, a Senior Research Fellow in Military Sciences at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).
Paul’s research interests cover national security strategy, NATO, and organisational aspects of Defence and security, including organisational design, human resources, professional military education and decision-making. Prior to working for RUSI, Paul was a Royal Air Force officer working in strategy and human resources roles across Defence including in the Ministry of Defence Head Office.
