Rear Adm. Jeffrey A. Harley, president, U.S. Naval War College (NWC), welcomes attendees of "Breaking the Mold; A Workshop on War and Strategy in the 21st Century" held in Newport, Rhode Island. The purpose for the two-day workshop, sponsored by the Under Secretary of the Navy, is to engage top minds within the U.S. Navy and private sector academic and business partners on ways to address future scenarios U.S. Military forces may face based upon current and emerging technology and new concepts in maritime and conventional warfare. The workshop will focus leaders to engage on a myriad of concepts and scenarios meant to push conversation, dialog, and analysis of ideas and thoughts outside conventional molds in an effort to stretch and expand strategic and operational mindsets.

This event is for Naval War College students, faculty and staff.

The second Breaking the Mold Workshop will take place Oct. 24-25. Sponsored by the Under Secretary of the Navy, the objective of the workshop is to generate actionable recommendations that would “break the mold” of conventional thinking regarding current U.S. national security plans and processes. These recommendations will be briefed to select decision makers and will be used as topics for additional analysis by U.S. Naval War College (NWC) faculty members. Over 100 participants from across a wide portion of the Department of Defense spectrum are expected, and the Chief of Naval Operations is scheduled to attend and make summary remarks.

This workshop is not a stand-alone event but instead it is envisioned as part of an evolving process of generating radical ideas that the participants and the NWC faculty will subsequently study and analyze.
