Further, it is important to discuss the missions of these organizations and how well the

existing structure works.

Subordinate Questions

The primary research question is intentionally posed to require an affirmative or

negative answer. If, after examining related research in this area, the DoD strategic

organizational structure is sufficient to meet today’s (and tomorrow’s) WMD challenges

at home and abroad then there is no problem at all. The Defense Department should

therefore be given high marks for preparing well to meet an increasingly dangerous

threat. If the answer is in the negative then there is a problem that must be addressed

quickly. One should logically look for a proposed alternative to the current structure.

Such a recommendation is outside the scope of this study and would be suggested as a

topic for follow-on research.

In support of the primary question the following subordinate questions must be

addressed:

1. What are the primary WMD threats to the military forces or homeland of the

US?

2. How is DoD currently structured to address these threats at the tactical,

operational, and strategic levels?

3. What is functional and dysfunctional or efficient and inefficient about the

current organizational structure at the strategic level?

4. If the current DoD structure at the strategic level is not optimal to meet the

threat, why is that so?
