Case Studies in National Security Transformation

As a resource for civilian and military classroom instruction, the Center for Technology and National Security Policy—with sponsorship by the [former] Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Force Transformation and Resources— developed a series of case studies to examine issues of national security transformation.

These case studies are considered “living” documents, continually evolving as developments occur in national security transformation and new information becomes available. All of the case studies include an instructors guide at the end of the study for use in classroom settings.

The case studies have been cleared for unlimited distribution/public release and are meant to be used in the classroom. Feedback on the case studies and the instructors guides are welcome.
