Army Campaign Plan 2011
What is it?
The Army Campaign Plan (ACP) 2011 approved by the Secretary of the Army, was released on Feb. 4, 2011. As Section IV of The Army Plan (TAP), it is the operational expression of the first three sections of the TAP.
What has the Army done?
The Army Campaign Plan has been published since 2004 to coordinate and synchronize Army Transformation efforts to include the modular conversion and growth of 302 brigades, the relocation of Army formations all the way up to the Army Command level under Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) and Global Defense Posture Realignment (GDPR), and the change to the cyclical readiness model of Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN), all while fighting two wars.
What continued efforts does the Army have planned for the future?
As the transformation efforts above have matured and/or are nearing completion, the focus of Army Transformation is shifting. The key themes found throughout Army Campaign Plan 2011 are: 1) re-energizing generating force transformation, which is the focus of the Secretary of the Army, 2) operationalizing business transformation as a third component of Army transformation, 3) identifying and measuring progress and success of Army priorities and 4) effectively and efficiently using resources to transform the Army in a fiscally constrained environment.
The most significant change with Army Campaign Plan 2011 is the update of the Army Campaign Plan Strategy Map, which provides the blueprint for the campaign plan. First, to support the Under Secretary of the Army's role as the Chief Management Officer of the Army in improving business practices, a campaign objective was added. Second, an assistant secretary of the Army was chosen to lead each campaign objective. In support of these leads, an Army Staff element was identified as a coordinator to provide the best military advice as was a core enterprise, whose members can provide subject matter expertise. Lastly, objectives were updated and refined to best support achieving the Army vision of "A Balanced Army for the 21st Century."
Why is this important to the Army?
The Army Campaign Plan 2011 provides the plan to "build a balanced Army for the 21st century that is a versatile mix of tailorable and networked organizations, operating on a rotational cycle, to provide a sustained flow of trained and ready forces for full-spectrum operations and to hedge against unexpected contingencies - at a tempo that is predictable and sustainable for our all-volunteer force over the course of the next six to eight years.
