Cebrowski - Introduction

The Cebrowski Institute for Military Innovation


What we are seeing, in moving from the industrial age to the information age, is what amounts to a new theory of war.  We have come to call that new theory of war network-centric warefare.  Its not about the network; rather, its about how wars are fought and how power is developed.  -- Vice Admiral Arthur K. Cebrowski (U.S. Navy, Ret.)

Mission

Mission

The Cebrowski Institute for Military Innovation incubates innovations for conducting military affairs in the age of digital technologies. The Institute defines innovation as the adoption of new practice in a community. Faculty who affiliate with the Institute have sensed emerging areas that may be of interest to the Navy and DoD, including technologies, practices or cultural phenomena. The metaphor of surfing is used to to describe sensing as deciding which innovation waves to catch and ride. A garden metaphor describes the Institute's work to incubate growth. When ready, projects are transitioned to others at NPS, the Navy or DoD.  Read more...

The Cebrowski Institute - Brief (Dec 1, 2016)
Cebrowski Quote from Dr. Jim Coy's Book

“Young men and women are rightly encouraged to establish goals and work toward them with diligence, courage, and tenacity. But how is one to establish a goal? Many define their goals in terms such as: achieve command of a combat unit, become president of a major corporation, achieve some considerable net worth, or attain high rank. The trouble with these goals is that on attaining them one is left with two awkward questions: Is that all there is? What’s next? Rather, a goal should be lofty, laudable, and one which can be continually strived for but never fully attained in even a long life of dedication. And when someone says, ‘Well, that’s fine, but what is your ultimate goal?’, you will be able to respond, ‘Heaven!’”
