The Defense Department plans to propose new workforce “solutions” to Congress in 2023, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen H. Hicks said in a virtual address to a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency conference Aug. 31.

“Making sure that we can increase speed of decision—speed and quality of decision and action”—is Hicks’ top aim, an objective that covers “a lot of different organizational innovations and operational concepts that come together.” These include enterprise cloud capability, artificial intelligence, and the effective use of data. But it also includes improving the tech workforce.
