USAID, and other USG agencies determine how to coordinate operations, actions, and activities at the theater strategic and operational levels to achieve strategic objectives. Whole of Government Approach - Key Insight 1: Dialogue -Dialogue refers to the "end" result to be achieved. Continual dialogue needs to happen with national and international leadership to ascertain the "real" (and often changing) problem, and clarify or develop national objectives, desired end states, risks, and feasible policy direction. Continuing commander and staff dialogue is seen, heard, and felt, then translated into solid, clear combatant command level objectives. This takes a lot of effort and never ends. National and international positions and objectives are continually changing. Theater-strategic headquarters recognize this and maintain dialogue to ensure they remain nested within these national and international objectives.

Whole of Government Approach - Key Insight 2: Analysis -Analysis refers to the "way" things should be done. It is recognized that the environment is complex and interconnected, and has a largely unpredictable nature. There's a need to be inclusive in gaining a common understanding of this environment and the problem. This combined analysis will help provide a "common" visualization and better achieve "unity of effort" with partners bridging the gap between all elements of national and international power. Whole of Government Approach - Key Insight 3: Actions- Actions refer to the "means" at which the ends are achieved. Harmonization of military actions with those of our stakeholders is what should be strived for. The use of mission-type orders, coupled with guidance and intent, empower decentralized military operations that are synergized with those of our partners. The importance of establishing a "command climate" and an organizational capability that facilitates "inclusion" by all members of the joint, interagency, and multinational team is continually seen. Whole of Government Approach - Key Insight 4: Accountability -It has also been seen over and over again that the combatant and JTF commander is ultimately held accountable for success in the end regardless of earlier higher direction, lack of resources, or absence of support by others. Unity of Effort in Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE- During Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE there was an interagency and international unity of effort. USAID/OFDA served as the lead agency for the relief effort and received supported from U.S. Armed forces and USG agencies. Inclusion vs. Exclusion -It's important to emphasize, that today's complex environment demands unified action to achieve national objectives, and personal relationships with stakeholders are the key to generating unified action. Remember to think inclusion rather than exclusion with stakeholders during planning, execution, and assessment. Recognize that this has significant classification and information sharing implications. Also, balance "need to know" with "need to share." Read each item below.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
