Session V “How have military leaders adapted to the digital transformation of Command?”

Command as a whole has been and will continue to be affected by the digital revolution. Besides the technological aspects impacting command as a function, the human factor of digital transformation is key. How do military commanders judge the impact of this digital transformation on their leadership? How has digital transformation impacted the Observation, Orientation, Decision, Action (OODA) loop, levels of hierarchy and decision-making, and relationship between commanders, troops, and political leadership? How have they navigated the cultural shift required to adapt C2 to the digital era? Has this shift generated new requirements for command and control?
