By Captain John Konrad (gCaptain) In our article “THIS IS NOT A DRILL” we sounded the alarm on the failure of the US Service provider Marine. We adopted that article with a video titled “PAN PAN – An Impassioned Name For Change” A video during which I cried (actually) for assist from Congress to conduct a Truman Committee sort look into the US Navy and US Service provider Marine… to not lay blame or punish however to us, all get rid of assumptions and align pursuits to rebuild the service provider fleet.
We acquired a whole lot of suggestions from readers on the deckplates of ships all the way in which as much as the very best ranges of the delivery business and US Authorities. We have been invited to talk on a prime US Navy Podcast and I labored to reply each query despatched to me through LinkedIn and our forum. Many needed to assist however didn’t understand how. Many needed easy solutions to easy questions they’ve concerning the issues we face right this moment.
Few favored the solutions I gave. The reality is there isn’t any easy reply. What we face proper now, not simply in US Flagged delivery however internationally and inside our US Navy and USCG, is an insidious compilation of occasions which can be interconnected in an internet of complexity. Additional complicating issues is the fog of uncertainty that has, for the reason that begin of COVID, engulfed our nation, our business, and the world itself.
This video tells the story of how we are able to navigate by way of this fog and chaos through strong management and the return to fundamentals.
We begin by eliminating assumptions by way of the usage of ‘dumb’ questions. -John
