Linking the Corporate Information Management (CIM) Initiative to Strategy-to-Tasks

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches


Corporate Information Management (CIM) is a DoD initiative aimed at developing standardized, shared, rational, and better-coordinated data systems and business practices. Strategy-to-Tasks (STT) is a RAND-developed framework used to relate defense programs to the operational tasks they support and to relate these, in turn, to national security strategy and objectives. This documented briefing analyzes demands on DoD from its changing operating environment, reviews features of CIM and STT, suggests how CIM's business approach and STT's operational military approach could be linked conceptually, and recommends future applications of CIM and STT. The overall objective is to strengthen the historically neglected fiscally-constrained planning function in the Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System (PPBS).
