Strategic Broadening for Mid-Career Cyber Leaders

By Capt. Brian Schultz and Capt. Blake Rhoades

The purpose of this paper is to highlight the need for strategic broadening and policy education for mid-career Cyberspace leaders, while also providing an overview of available broadening programs that have a short-term, in-person format.  As any leader progresses through the ranks, the Army often requires different skills at higher levels of responsibility; Cyberspace will not be an exception.  The two programs highlighted here provide an educational jump start to mid-career leaders in the realm of strategy and policy.  This paper will outline these program’s requirements for eligibility, coursework, and outcomes.
