That's close to what I mean.... IW culture, as a whole, is to be the "supporting" versus the "supported." If they hope to make IW commander truly successful they need to change that. To be clear, I know that IW is supporting right, but I think the CNO has a vision for something more in the future (see Design 2.0).Yes, if by “staff” you also mean watchstanding on intel watchfloors, giving daily opintel briefs to the N3 or J3, nominating/vetting targets as part of the joint targeting cycle, and weaponeering for strike.
The tribe that will claim the most IW commander roles is the one develops a career path to fill it. Right now there is very little incentive to adjust career paths to fill IW commander, because it's not a flag maker (all other things being equal) and it is oddly positioned at the absolute end of a career (i.e. 28-30 years).I believe we’ll see mainly intel Os as Quebec actual in the CWC/ IW commander afloat role.
