An Analytic Framework and Risk Scorecard to Support Strategic Force Planning 17 by asking how it would affect the probabilities in the end-to-end map and, ultimately, how it would affect the probability of successful execution of the CONOPS. As implementation proceeded, the Air Force mobilized subjectmatter experts to address the hundreds of elements in the end-toend map associated with each CONOPS. The Air Force developed detailed scenarios to describe the environment in which it expected each CONOPS to occur.

In all likelihood, wise leaders will not delegate their responsibility to choose to a set of specialists who can apply these tools; by definition, formal methods simplify, abstracting from reality to make any problem tractable. Such simplification can help leaders see through potentially distracting detail not relevant to the key issues at hand. Simplification can also remove issues relevant to the decision, especially when subjective judgments are hard to reflect in risk analysis. So wise leaders will not rely solely on aggregative riskassessment tools to determine their decisions.
