Transforming the Chicken

In the transformation case studies examined in H200, though the factors influencing transformation remain the same, the way those factors interact are very different in every case.  In some cases threat drives the transformation process, in other cases an operational vision (doctrine) is the main driver, and in still others the technology is in place before the country/service really understands how to employ it.  What should be the driver of transformation?  Which factor do you think is the most common driver of transformation in the modern US military?  Is that have a positive or negative effect on current transformation efforts?  Of all the factors which we have studied that influence transformation, which do you think most negatively influenced the demise of the army’s Future Combat System?
