Defence Reform in Ukraine

What is it about?

A paper explaining why Eastern European defence organisations (and probably most other Ministries as well) cannot reform in the way that Western experts expect. The analysis is novel and based upon commonly used business and cultural tools.

Why is it important?

This subject is important because countries like USA are spending huge amounts of money on helping with reform but little is happening. The money is being wasted.
