CIA Director John BrennanÂ has outlined the agency’s strategic direction as itÂ seeks to address developmentsÂ in the national security landscape, including issues on policy and technology, amid its current cyber-focused reorganizationÂ efforts.
In his address to the workforce published FridayÂ on the CIA’s website, Brennan said the strategic plan will focus on talent and leadership development, the digital revolution, business process modernization and capability integration.
TheÂ planÂ works to help CIA adapt its missionÂ to bolster theÂ U.S.’ strategic and tactical postureÂ in response to the identified shifts in national security issues, he noted.
Brennan said theÂ CIA will reset management expectations, create a talent development center of excellence and centralize training under CIA University to support recruitment, performance management and multidisciplinary learning programs.
The agency will also implementÂ a newÂ digital innovation directorate to manage the integration of digital and cyber technologies into the mission areas, as well as mission centers to oversee the integration and interoperability ofÂ operational, analytic, digital, support and technical functions.
Brennan added that the CIA executive director and executive secretary will also have enhancedÂ roles in corporate governance and executive support functions to drive organizational efficiency and effectiveness.
