SQNLDR Travis Hallen, Flawed Doctrine: The Problem With Centralised Control And Decentralised Execution
This paper focuses on two objections to current ADF doctrine. First, reliance on a ‘bumper-sticker’4 as the basis for developing command arrangements is unwise; it discourages understanding, inhibits flexibility and promotes blind-adherence. Second, modern views of air power command and control stem from a misinterpretation of past experience, a misinterpretation that has become conventional wisdom.
