    Organizational Design - Building the U.S. Space Force

    Please join us for a presentation on Organizational Design – Building the U.S. Space Force. 

    On December 20th, 2019, POTUS signed the National Defense Authorization Act, and with the bipartisan support of Congress, established a sixth armed force - the U.S. Space Force.

    Space is integral to our National Security, prosperity, and way of life.  While the United States would prefer that space remain free of conflict, potential adversaries have taken steps to challenge us in space and are rapidly developing strategies, organizations, and capabilities to exploit our national reliance on space.  This new service will posture us to compete, deter, and if necessary, win in this era of great power competition.

    • This is the largest reorganization of the DoD since the 1986 Goldwater-Nichols Act and the first creation of a branch of our Armed Forces since the establishment of the Air Force in the National Security Act of 1947.
    • By design, the USSF will be light, lean and deliberately focused on mission.
    • To maximize efficiency of the U.S. Space Force and focus resources, the new service will bring together joint, space-minded operators and systems to defend our national interests in and through space.
    • The transition for current resources into the USSF will be expeditious in conditioned-based phases to best take care of our service members and avoid risk to the current missions.

    Mr. Bruce Hollywood serves in the office of the Chief of Space Operations for the United States Space Force.  In his current role he assists the Vice Commander in executing establishment activities for the United States Space Force.

    Prior to this assignment, Bruce served in Joint Staff Directorate for Strategy, Plans and Policy (J5).  He played a key role in the development of the National Military Strategy, the Joint Strategic Campaign Plan, the Global Campaign Plans, and the new Globally Integrated Base Plans.  He worked closely with interagency partners across the USG to strengthen whole-of-government approaches to National Security challenges.

    In 2015/2016, Bruce was a Fellow in the initial cohort of the White House Leadership Development Program.  Sponsored by the Executive Office of the President, the fellowship seeks to build Enterprise Leaders to tackle the Federal Government’s highest priority and highest impact challenges.  His White House assignment was focused on improving Service Member and Veterans Mental Health and suicide prevention services.

    Bruce served 21 years in the United States Air Force in a wide range of operational, staff, and leadership positions and retired as a Colonel.

    In addition to earning a Bachelor of Science and two Master of Science Degrees, he attended the Command and General Staff College at Ft Leavenworth, the Air War College at Maxwell AFB, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Seminar XXI program in Washington DC.
