In a world of complex threats, dynamic opportunities, and diffuse power, effective diplomacy and development require institutions that adapt, embrace technology, and allow for experimentation to ensure continuous learning. Based on an extensive review of operations at the Department and USAID, the QDDR outlines a series of improvements that will strengthen our ability to advance America’s interests. These improvements include:

  1. Knowledge, Data, and Technology
  2. Promoting Innovation
  3. Managing Physical Risk
  4. Advancing Strategic Planning and Performance Management
