Ken Krieg.

The Professional Development Institute (PDI) keynote speaker on June 2, 2004, was Ken Krieg, Director of Program Analysis and Evaluation for the Department of Defense (DoD). Mr. Krieg first thanked the PDI attendees for the splendid job they do, year in and year out, saying, "The front office can't perform if the back office doesn't."

He then gave attendees a detailed update on the present fiscal and management issues in the DoD, the challenges it faces, and the business fixes still needed to meet the challenges. He stressed the imperatives for transformation, stating that we are in a period of "discontinuous change"; the country had relaxed and under-invested in Defense, and the signal of 9/11 was clear.

He talked about the Bush initiatives, how we must change the way we think by continually working on innovative strategies, including the upcoming rebasing of American defense forces. Among the remaining challenges is the need to link the Defense strategy to the DoD budget while trying to attain some funding precision in an unstable world.
