This course will expose students to one of the critical elements of national security and defense policy — national security and resource planning — underscoring the synergistic relationship between policy, strategy, and resources. Ideally, resource planning should service broader U.S. national security and foreign policy interests, providing a basis from which successful policies can be prioritized and executed. Knowledge of national security resource planning is essential to gaining a fuller understanding of U.S. national security policy, foreign policy, defense and military policy, and intelligence policy.
