Readiness for conflict with external aggressors is the core business of the Australian Defence Organisation (ADO). The institution of hierarchical disciplined working environments within the Defence Forces facilitates readiness. The evolution of new activities involving the ADO has provided the impetus to analyse whether we approach conflicts involving Defence personnel and programs with the same rigidity. The real challenge facing the ADO is to develop a system whereby the existing methods of order and formal means of resolving conflicts can be complemented by ADR mechanisms.
