Subject:  PMI Asilomar Event, July 12 -14, 1996

Dear Sherrill,
This confirms my plans to address PMl's Asilomar Conference on leadership and technology. Rod Welch and I have had numerous discussions and your theme is exciting. Additionally, a good friend and Corps associate, Pete Offringa, left a voice mail for me two weeks ago suggesting I participate. I replied last week (again through voice mail) that I had already committed and I appreciated his thinking of me.

Your agenda to evaluate this partnership is prescient and timely under the leadership crisis evident in an avalanche of downsizing and demands for new skills. The "New World Order" paper I reviewed in accepting your invitation to speak sounds a strong alert and offers compelling ideas to solve the debilitating time/information dilemma. By deploying new tools, skills and roles to convert information into knowledge, we can mainstream the process the military calls "intelligence". I am anxious to see these ideas tested in the field.

Conferences like Asilomar underscore the need for cultural change. I am looking forward to listening to your ideas and sharing my views.
