Join us on 25 August 2013 at 5pm (Eastern, U.S.) for Midrats Episode 190: “Crowdsourcing the Admin Overhead”:

If the CNO’s #1 priority is war fighting, how do leaders focus on that priority inside a 24-hr
day?

In a complicated structure of Administrative and Operational Chains of Command and the unending hunger of a bureaucracy for metrics and the reports that feed them – when does a system itself become and “Administrative Burden.”

On person’s administrative burden is another person’s critical requirement – so how does an organization’s leadership balance subordinate priorities so they do not interfere with #1?

Our guest to discuss this and more will be Rear Admiral Herman Shelanski, USN, Director, Assessment Division, (OPNAV N81). Specifically, we will discuss the CNO’s crowdsourcing initiative “RAD” (Reducing Administrative Distractions) specifically looking at removing those non-value added distractions in the Fleet keeping Sailors away from the Navy’s top priorities.

    —…”those non-value added distractions in the Fleet keeping Sailors away from the Navy’s top priorities.”… — That would be the 233 or so flag ranks and an environment that has significantly more O-6s than E-9s. USMC? A small handful of divisions and 89 or so flag ranks.

      That’s not exactly a meaningful comparison. The Navy is almost twice the size of the Marine Corps.

        Leadership is for leaders … remove the GO/FO ‘technicians’. Leadership is too precious to dilute as we have.
