Air Force Gen. Darren W. McDew, commander, U.S. Transportation Command, hosted the quarterly Component Commanders’ Conference Feb. 24 at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. The event culminated the two previous days' dialogue among several venues.

Earlier sessions for the week included the Distribution Process Owner Executive Board here on Feb. 22, where members addressed new ways of thinking in contested environments, innovative logistics and cyber mission assurance.

Also, Navy Adm. Michael S. Rogers, commander, U.S. Cyber Command, director, National Security Agency, and chief, Central Security Service, spoke here Feb. 22 and challenged attendees to think more broadly about cyber.

On Feb. 23, the Cybersecurity Roundtable was held in O’Fallon, Illinois, and participants discussed fighting through critical infrastructure, data integrity and mission assurance.

The Component Commanders’ Conference keynote speaker was Clayton M. Christensen, the Kim B. Clark Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School. Regarded as one of the world's top experts on innovation and growth, he is credited with coining the phrase “disruptive innovation” and spoke about disruptive thinking.

In addition to Christensen’s presentation, shareholders were briefed on projected global trends, key cyber terrain, and changes in the new congress resulting in opportunities for disruptive influence.
