September 2004
Sea Power;Sep2004, Vol. 47 Issue 9, p36
This article presents an interview with Edmund P. Giambastiani Jr., Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, Transformation, and Commander of the U.S. Joint Forces Command. Giambastiani says that the Joint Forces Command has been given significant authority to work with services like the U.S. Navy, for example, in management initiative decisions. That allows it oversight in programs that involve joint command and control. He says that culture is a very important part of being able to do anything in any organization. Giambastiani adds that the culture of understanding joint warfighting today is significantly advanced over what it was a few years ago.
