CIA Director John Brennan has just done what many of his predecessors at the agency surely dreamed of doing over the past few decades, which is to put the existing organization chart in the shredder and redo it.The message was blunt: The CIA's current management structure is too loose and archaic for a world that's on fire.The reorganization has three basic goals, each of which is endorsed by former directors and deputies I queried.Brennan has appointed 10 assistant directors who will run these centers, and he hopes to have them operating by October.Brennan's second major change is a new "Directorate of Digital Innovation".Brennan's final reform involves personnel management.A final concern about this generally sensible plan: Brennan's model managers seem to be the assistant secretaries that run bureaux at the State Department, or the combatant commanders who oversee regional forces for the Pentagon. Those structures would be better than what exists at the CIA.
