Who should read this publication

JDN 2/19 articulates an audience-centric approach focusing on changing, or maintaining, behaviours of target audiences. The strategic communication approach is, however, more than coherent Defence communications. It recognises that all activity within the Defence Operating Model has communicative effect and the formulation of strategy must take this into account – we cannot not communicate.

Note: JDNs are developed to fill doctrinal gaps or to stimulate discussion for informing future doctrine. They are authoritative, based on current practice and established doctrine, but they are not ratified.
