Ten Things You Should Know About 2015’s Economy (Metro DC edition)

The following 10 Points are from a presentation given to the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Business and Networking Group (BANG). Lots of details — so if you have several hours I would be glad to discuss. These are my talking points — will see about expanding upon the talking points in writing within the weeks ahead.

#1 — Jobs are back. Job growth is expected to be strong through 2020. 800,000 new jobs.

#2 — Gov jobs have dropped for three years in a row. Going Fed just isn’t happening.

#3 — Most new jobs created by 2020: Service Industry, Healthcare, Education. Defense? Meh!

#4 – Income will be stagnant or drop. Want a payraise? Quit your company. Go elsewhere.

#5 – Sequestration is back! … in 2016. We could make it go away but no one wants to pay taxes.

#6 – Defense Industry paychecks continue to be ‘interesting’. New pay schemes floating about.

#7 – Winning Defense skillsets: UAVs, Special Operations, Cloud and Big Data, GEOINT.

#8 – ISR Analytics: The future is 1999 – COTS technology with multi-INT decision tools wanted!

#9 – Stagnant DoD skillsets: single-INT specialists, warfighter logisticians, maneuver warfare.

#10 – KITCHEN SINK THOUGHTS: Commercial Industry can do more with less, much less. Methods of recruiting continue to evolve: there is no clear approach to recruiting talent. Employers know what they don’t like but are unable to explain what they really want – most really don’t know … or take the time to think about it. We will continue to hear yada, yada, yada about talent shortages even as employers do little or nothing to grow talent. Employers want Einsteins walking through their door that will work for not more than Homer Simpson earns … if he earned a paycheck (while managing the nuclear reactor).

#11 — BONUS Thoughts: Median incomes around Metro Washington DC could drop $10-20,000 from today’s $90-100K by 2020. If you alter your view of the future you will have a good future … because you will have adapted and prepared. 2016 could be another bumpy economic year (Metro DC) as Sequestration rocks the defense world again. Much of Metro DC will have happily moved solidly toward ‘what comes next’ by 2016 by planning for smaller homes, better connected neighborhoods, higher density urban planning, and a realignment of commercial industry as it begins accommodating a younger (30s and 40s) workforce that eschews meetings, driving to work five days a week, and is more oriented to matrixed provision of labor services. The defense industry will struggle but evolve (profitably) as Cold Warriors continue to filter out of the system and Robert McNamara types reappear.

First Ever Marine Corps Officer Takes Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Reins

DoD News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23, 2015 – Surrounded by senior leaders in the defense and intelligence communities, the first Marine Corps officer to become director of the Defense Intelligence Agency took office here today in a ceremony at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling.

Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Vincent R. Stewart took charge of DIA and the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance.

Michael G. Vickers, under secretary of defense for intelligence, called Stewart a “warrior intellectual.”

“Vince is strongly known for his leadership,” Vickers said. “He mentored a number of our intelligence officers, and he will be a great leader of the Defense Intelligence Agency.”

While DIA has endured a lot of change in the last few years, he added, Stewart “will consolidate that change and lead the agency to a new level.”

Dedicated Warfighter, Respected Leader

Navy Adm. Cecil D. Haney, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, called Stewart a well-known intelligence professional, a dedicated warfighter and respected leader.

“I look forward to your strategic thinking and critical thought, because you are taking command when we are facing a strategic and security environment that’s more complex, dynamic and volatile than perhaps any time in our history,” Haney told Stewart.

James R. Clapper, director of national intelligence, noted that Stewart is the first Marine and the first African-American to lead a major intelligence agency.

“He’s always been a great champion of Marine Corps intelligence, which grew on his watch in size, capability and relevance,” Clapper said of Stewart. “Everywhere he’s gone, he’s perfected the basics of intelligence work.” He called Stewart an extremely competent intelligence officer, a great Marine and an inspired choice to lead the agency.

Stewart, who was promoted to lieutenant general this morning, expressed his gratitude for the leaders he’s had during his career. “I really am standing on the shoulders of giants,” he said.

“While I’ve had the opportunity to serve in many positions, … this is one of the greatest honors of my career,” Stewart said. “The opportunity to lead this magnificent organization is truly a unique and humbling experience.”

Building Upon the Path in Place

The new DIA director said his tenure will focus on striving for excellence in the intelligence profession, and building upon the path already put in place by his predecessors.

His leadership, he said, is about carrying out the legacy set forth since the agency’s founding 50 years ago, setting an even higher standard of excellence and moving the agency into the future by focusing on the most important and difficult defense intelligence issues.

“It’s about building on today’s successes for a greater tomorrow,” he added. “It’s about writing the next chapter, not a new book.”

Under his direction, he said, the agency’s focus will continue to be one that supports military commanders in the field and defense leaders at home.

“We must continue to meet new threats on the battlefield,” Stewart said, “and establish even better ways to outmaneuver our adversaries.”
