How, then, can one allocate decision rights to ensure that continuing field operations can respond more rapidly to a fluid, even turbulent, situation yet still focus the field’s energies toward achieving the intended effects? Enter the German Army notion of schwerpunkt. Schwerpunkt Boyd (1986) argued that the German Army derived schwerpunkt from the physical sciences as an organizational concept for enhancing the responsiveness and adaptability of large organizations. Its first widely noticed result was the operational concept of blitzkrieg during World War II.

In his view, the concept was broadened in those fast-moving operations to characterize the content of communications between a force commander and his subordinates. Implicitly, it was used to delegate broad authority to take independent action to those subordinates when unexpected opportunities or challenges arose. Rather than developing elaborate plans with specific actions and informing each subordinate about its role and taskings, the commander would communicate the overall objectives to his subordinates, along with individual responsibilities for each objective.

For that purpose, the neutral integrator requires the supply side to provide a series of MOEIs that could be used to monitor performance, along with a set of MOEI thresholds that, if violated, indicate that the system is not performing in a manner consistent with achieving the Framework 17 MOEs. Sentinels can monitor these measures continuously to detect any unacceptable deviation from planned levels. Should such a deviation occur, both the neutral integrator and the supply-side managers would spring into action.
