The Journal of Electronic Defense | September 2017

12

n his JED editorial last month, John Knowles questioned the recent silence
around the DOD Third Offset Strategy. Is it progressing, changing or disappearing? Later in the issue, there was a long list of EW accomplishments in
the House and Senate versions of the National Defense Authorization bills.
Still later, there was a great feature story on improving Naval EW. How
do these pieces fit together? The common thread through all is the role that
authority and resources play in solving a problem. What do you have when you
combine our JED with all that we are doing across the AOC - our programs and
our chapters around the world?
Our community is making tremendous progress in advancing the professional
fields related to EW, EMSO, CEMA, Cyber, and IO. When you combine our JED with
all that we are doing across the AOC - our programs and our chapters around the
world - you create a process to provide context (tell a story), achieve outcomes
(accomplish progress), and hopefully, provide solutions (solve a problem). This
is advocacy.
We talk a lot about the need for advocacy, and more specifically "education"
and "awareness." Yet, we do not often stop and think about what these words
truly mean, and what is our ultimate goal for advocacy. These terms are found
throughout the AOC Strategic Plan, but why are they so important for the AOC,
and the broader community we serve, to understand and embrace?
Advocacy is more than simply talking about an issue ad infinitum or even
advancing an issue for its own sake. At its core, advocacy is about cultivating
leadership that, in turn, will provide both authority and resources to advance a
cause or solve a problem. Cultivate. Own. Solve.
So how do we get there? We need to educate, engage and endure. Education is
not merely the transfer of information, but rather it is generation of knowledge.
It requires discovery, analysis and application. And it must be decentralized.
We have so many amazing members and chapters around the world. We must
empower them because they are on the ground, and that is where discovery
starts. Education helps create context, which is necessary to tell our story so
we can effectively engage our leaders and stakeholders. And, we must endure.
We need to embrace our proud heritage while keeping our eyes on the horizon.
What do we want AOC - our community and the professions we serve - to look
like in 2020? 2030?
Thus, we need to cultivate leadership. Leadership is more than just senior
leaders who understand EW. True leadership is about becoming a problem owner
and exercising authority to provide solutions. If you don't have leaders in the
right place at the right time to make things happen, it's very hard to accomplish
your goals. We need to continue our investments in advocacy. It is the only way
to understand, confront, and solve the challenges we face in the EMS today. -
