The Defense Business Board (DBB) provides the Secretary and Deputy Secretary of Defense, as well as other senior leaders, with independent advice, which reflects an outside private sector perspective, on proven and effective best business practices for application to the Department. It was established in 2001 as a complement to broader transformation efforts in the Department of Defense.  The Board consists of approximately twenty private sector executives with a vast range of experiences in business management. The Board’s objective is to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of organizational support to the nation’s warfighters. [1]
