"one basic thing that will make allied commands work." Building mutual confidence relies on four tenants: respect, rapport, knowledge of partners, and patience. While these tenants cannot guarantee success, ignoring them may lead to mission failure due to a lack of unity of effort. Respect-national honor and prestige; their opinion must be sought in mission assignment. Rapport-requires personal, direct relationship; improve teamwork. Knowledge of Partner-learning about the enemy; similar to understanding the doctrine, capabilities, strategic goals, culture, religion, custom, history, and value of each partner. Patience-take time and attention to develop; diligent pursuit of a trust, mutually beneficial relationship require untiring, evenhanded patience.

Interorganizational Coordination Considerations in Multinational Operations Effective multinational operations require international rationalization, standardization, and interoperability (RSI) with friendly nations. RSI is important for achieving practical cooperation, efficient use of research, development, procurement, support, and production resources; as well as, effective multinational warfighting capabilities without sacrificing U.S. warfighting capabilities. Rationalization In the RSI construct, rationalization refers to any action that increases the effectiveness of allied and/or coalition forces through more efficient or effective use of defense resources committed to the alliance and/or coalition. Rationalization includes a consideration, reassignment of national priorities to higher alliance needs, standardization, specialization, mutual support or improved interoperability, and greater cooperation. Rationalization applies to both weapons and materiel resources and non-weapons military matters. Standardization Unity of effort is greatly enhanced through standardization. The basic purpose of standardization programs is to achieve the closest practical cooperation among alliance or coalition partners through the efficient use of resources and the reduction of operational, logistic, communications, technical, and procedural obstacles in multinational military operations. Interoperability Interoperability is the essential requirement for multinational operations. Nations whose forces are interoperable can operate together effectively in numerous ways. Less interoperable forces have correspondingly fewer ways to work together. Although frequently identified with technology, important areas of interoperability may include doctrine, procedures, communications, and training.

    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.

    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.
