Australia's Defence Strategy Framework

18 May, 2017 -- Seminars
Speaker: Brigadier Michael Mahy
Venue: Ngunnawal Theatre, R1
Time: 1000 - 1130

In this Air Power Seminar, the Director General Military Strategy, Brigadier Michael Mahy, will discuss the operation of the newly released Strategy Framework. The Strategy Framework ensures Defence remains a strategy-led department. It does this by strengthening the links between strategy, capability and resources, while appreciating strategic risk. The discussion will focus on the seminal documents supporting Defence's implementation of strategy including the Defence Planning Guidance and Australia's Military Strategy.
