2011 Annual Business Transformation Report to Congress
What is it?
2010 was a big year for Army business transformation efforts. The Secretary of the Army, supported by the Office of Business Transformation completed many efforts that will propel the Army into an even more successful 2011. The report details FY 2010 business transformation accomplishments including the development of an integrated management system (IMS) to assist leaders make better resource-informed decisions; the implementation of the Business System Information Technology Strategy for effective use of our Enterprise Resource Planning Systems enabling the Army to get people, equipment, and resources to where we need them most; and progress on the Army business initiatives.
What has the Army done?
The Army Under Secretary, Dr. Joseph W. Westphal, in his role as the chief management officer (CMO) with the support of the assistant secretaries of the Army and the Army staff led an effort in 2010 to retool the Army Campaign Plan (ACP) into a strategic management plan and performance management tool. This will help Army Senior Leaders manage, synchronize and transform Army business processes to achieve the Army's imperatives and outcomes.
The CMO also led the implementation of the IMS, which is central to successful transformation of Army business operations. The IMS is an integrated set of business management processes enabling Army leadership to make resource informed decisions and provide the Nation with trained and ready forces at best value. An effective business operation equates to better personnel management, effective purchase and distribution of Soldier equipment, and more efficient family and installation support services.
What continued efforts does the Army have planned for the future?
The generating force, charged with training, equipping and sustaining Soldiers, must now become an engine of change and adaptation. "It must become a force driven by innovation, able to quickly develop and field all that Soldiers and families require" as stated in the 2011 Army Posture Statement.
Why is this important to the Army?
How the Army can prepare, manage, and sustain itself for a complex and uncertain future is fundamental to national security. We are faced with shrinking budget dollars, a dangerous world with extremist activities and national economic challenges. Our work continues to bring the Army back into balance. Continued focus on Army business transformation will deliver an integrated management system that is output-focused and performance based that produces readiness not at any cost but at best value.
