List Of Additional Items Tying Me To Operations In The Cognitive Domain
List of Additional Items Tying me to Operations in the Cognitive DomainI have been an early and consistent pioneer in the field of Operations in the Cognitive Domain. I have been a vocal propon-ent since the mid-1980s; and I have been widely published in this area since 1994. In 1995, I was sponsored by the Nation-al Guard Bureau for a $285,000 research grant from Army Studies Board for a study on cognition, culture, organizationalproductivity, and combat effectiveness. My work in this area has received letters of endorsement from: the Office of Chiefof Naval Operations, the Naval Doctrine Command, the Naval Leader Training Unit, the Naval Special Warfare Center, theMarine Corps Combat Developments Command, the Army Research Institute, the Center for Army Leadership, the ArmyBattle Command Battle Labs, many others. This work has been referenced in publications of Naval Doctrine Command,Air University, and USJFCOM (among others).Between 2001 and 2006, while working at US Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM), I injected consideration of the Cognit-ive Domain into Joint Concepts. From 2007 through 2011, I did the same in Joint Doctrine. In 2003, I founded the "Cog-nitive Domain Cabal", an international network of defense professionals dedicated to the proposition that the CognitiveDomain is dominant in engagement, conflict, and war. In 2007, I was inducted into JFCOM’s “Black Swan Society”, theCognitive Systems Engineering Consortium and the Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making Technical Group ofHuman Factors Society. Each of these groups waived their normal requirement of a doctoral degree in view of my work.In 2008, I was asked to administer the Army War College’s and National Intelligence University’s “Proteus Institute’s”website dealing with “Cognitive Domain”. I was also appointed USJFCOM’s official liaison for “Key Strategic Issues”, inwhich capacity I drafted USJFCOM’s list of “Proposed Study Topics” and “Special Areas of Emphasis” for National Def-ense University (NDU), Service Schools, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Finally, I assisted the JointFutures Laboratory (J-9) and the “National Program for Small Unit Excellence” in establishing their respective programsfor operations in the “Cognitive Domain”.In 2009, the US State Department’s Strategic Communication Working Group asked me to administer their web site. I alsolectured on a related subject at Army War College’s Strategic Studies Institute’s (SSI) annual Strategy Conference, where Iwas asked to submit my lecture for publication by SSI as a monograph in their “Advanced Strategic Thought” series. Thatyear, I edited the Joint “Strategic Communication” Handbook. This initially incorporated many of my writings on the sub-ject; but these were eventually deemed by reviewers to be too politically sensitive to appear in an unclassified document.A partial list of my recent published articles on this subject includes:1. "The Nature and Importance of the Cognitive Domain". Slated, along with other pieces, to be published as an annex tothe "Strategic Communication Handbook” in 2009; it was withdrawn when deemed too sensitive for official publication byDOD evaluators. It was published in Royal Canadian Military Institutes (RCMI’s) November-December 2009 SITREPjournal. The Naval War College Review has also expressed interest in publishing this piece.2. “The Epistemology of Strategy”. This lecture was delivered to the Armys Annual Strategy Conference and theHampton Roads Militaria Society in 2009. It has been published in the RCMIs May-June 2009 SITREP journal; on the"Defense in the National Interest" (DNI) website; and in Diplomacy World #111, Fall 2010; and was slated for publicationin the 2010 edition of the Joint Center for Operational Analysis (JCOA) Journal. The Armys Strategic Studies Institutehas slated this for publication in the Proceedings of their Conference, and it has been requested that I expand it into amonograph for publication in their "Advanced Strategic Thought" series. The Naval War College Review has alsoexpressed interest in publishing it.3. “Three Aspects of Structure and Operations Essential for Successful Organizations: Vision, Philosophy, and Learning”SITREP, Royal Canadian Military Institute, January - February 2007. The Wright Stuff, Air University Press. 3 September2009. The US Naval Institute has also asked to publish this in their Proceedings magazine.4. “Shared Situational Understanding” SITREP, Royal Canadian Military Institute, September– October 2007; MilitaryReview, US Army Command and General Staff College, September– October 2010 (also published in the MilitaryIntelligence Professional Bulletin, Military Intelligence Corps Associations Vanguard magazine, and the Defense in theNational Interest website. It was slated for publication in the 2010 edition of the Joint Center for Operational Analysis(JCOA) Journal. The Marine Corps Gazette has also asked to publish this piece.5. "Massacre in Fallujah: A Lesson on Perception and Cognition in Warfare" Royal Canadian Military Institute’s SITREP,November – December 2006, and in the Fall 2010 edition of USJFCOM Joint Warfighting Center’s A CommonPerspective. It was slated for publication in the 2010 edition of the Joint Center for Operational Analysis Journal. TheNaval Institute’s Proceedings magazine, and the Marine Corps Gazette have also asked to publish this piece.6. “The Paradox of Shaping”. Published in the Fall 2010 edition of US Joint Forces Command Joint Warfighting CenterDoctrine and Education Group’s A Common Perspective.
