Examine the use of drones in the U.S. Military from a strategic leadership perspective. Within your examination, discuss the strategic considerations of using drones to achieve specific military goals. Speak to the change management elements of moving towards the idea of sending fewer individuals into war and attacks on the country’s enemies yet requiring a very large behind-the-scenes workforce.
Then, discuss the crisis management element of this initiative, including the limited funding and diminishing workforce due to active-duty service requirements, the stress of being a drone pilot, and the public’s perception. Be sure to include your thoughts on how the elements of change and perceived crisis should be handled and the various leadership styles and behaviors you feel would be most effective in this scenario; and then explain your rationale.
