Summary
This work examines whether centralized control and decentralized execution4 is a valid doctrinal tenet, given the technological advances in the information age. Fascinating scenarios from recent operations, set in the context of a 3complex air operations system, show the dilemmas presented by participants2 increased access to information--and the resulting consequences of their decisions. With the uncertainty of war and the blending of diverse organizations, the author illustrates that commanders must balance empowerment with accountability by developing depth in command relationships among their subordinates
