Communicating in Two Directions

I had an opportunity to read "Mind the Gaps," an article in this month's Proceedings Magazine by ADM Gortney and ADM Harris1 .

The article focused on the Readiness Kill Chain, basically noting that it's time to break down the barriers that grown up over time that have resulted in gaps in readiness.  I believe this topic is important because it speaks to an essential role of the officer profession, making our processes better to realize more effective warfighting. I also believe it provides an opportunity to focus on communication, both up and down the chain of command.
