Enabling Mission Accomplishment: Four Overarching, Interrelated Strategies
To enable mission accomplishment, the Army is executing four overarching, interrelated strategies. These strategies seek to accomplish the Army's mission, consistent with the requirements prescribed by the National Security and Defense Strategies. These strategies are enabling the Army to continue to accomplish its mission today — in service to the Nation — while building and maintaining the capabilities to ensure the Army remains relevant and ready to the needs of the Combatant Commanders tomorrow. The Army is:
- Providing Relevant and Ready Landpower in support of the Combat Commanders and the Joint Force to sustain the full range of our global commitments;
- Training and Equipping our Soldiers to Serve as Warriors and Growing Adaptive Leaders who are highly competent, flexible and able to deal with the 21st century challenges they now confront;
- Attaining a Quality of Life and Well-Being for Our People that match the quality of the service they provide; and
- Providing Infrastructure to Enable the Force to Fulfill its Strategic Roles by establishing and maintaining the infrastructure and the information network required to develop, to generate, to train and to sustain the force.
These interrelated strategies serve to unify our collective efforts. Relevant, Ready Landpower depends on Soldiers who are well trained, equipped and led. Soldiers must be supported by high Standards for Quality of Life and modern infrastructure to Enable the Force to Fulfill its Strategic Roles and Missions.
The Army's current posture, initiatives and progress are described within the context of these interrelated strategies. The initiatives demonstrate how the strategies are being executed and, in a broader sense, the resources required to execute them. Transformation is the central thread which runs through each of these strategies.
Army transformation represents much more than improvements in equipment or warfighting methods. It is a multidimensional, interdependent process that involves:
- Adapting new technologies and business operations;
- Improving joint warfighting concepts and business processes;
- Changing organizational structures; and
- Developing leaders, people and culture that reflect the realities of our operating environment.
