The Services have already tried this with a couple tech areas. What happens when these ‘tech expert’ management organizations come into being is they create excessively bureaucratic management roadblocks and an added layer of frustration, and often a dubious technical expertise base.
Their ‘tech management experts’ often are DoD civilians some other federal organization is trying to get rid of but can’t fire.
Overall, this move by Obama is a tired and already-tried idea that doesn’t work in practice, in my opinion.
I would agree, but anybody with zero business background, will be told to repeat a learned mistake....over and over, and never realize it’s just not going to work. This is why you need to elect people with real life experience. Saying you did professor work, wannabe legislative stuff, and community services...it’s just not much to brag about. It won’t help you on the resume, and it’s kind of an indicator of you not knowing much.
