Victory for America's Army begins with TRADOC

 

The four TRADOC functions of DESIGN, ACQUIRE, BUILD and IMPROVE are crucial to enable the Army to meet specific Army strategic aimpoints. These aimpoints are defined in the Army Strategic Plan between now and 2050 for the three chief of staff of the Army priorities of Readiness (Current Fight), Future Army (Future Fight) and Take Care of the Troops (Always). These aimpoints describe Army capabilities and conditions for the Current Fight, Next Fight and Future Fight.

TRADOC designs the future force to ensure that the United States Army remains the dominant land power in the world.

Multi-Domain Battle is the concept that will allow the Army, with the Joint Force, to maintain military dominance by developing both greater self-sufficiency and deeper joint integration to fight and win without assured air, sea, space and cyber dominance.

Lessons learned, refined doctrine and leader development merge at TRADOC to improve the Army.

  • Adapt the Institutional Army: the Army must change for the information age. New methods of training, education, career management, logistical support, financial management, communication--internal and external, and a host of others will improve the Army.
  • New Doctrine: battlefield experiences combined with new concepts require new doctrine that effectively describes how the Army will accomplish its assigned missions.
  • Talent Management: the Army must transcend its industrial age personnel management systems to fully develop and employ the talents each Soldier brings to the fight.
  • Army University: TRADOC is reforming and systematizing the Army school system to make it both more effective and more efficient.
  • NCO 2020: the future will place greater demands on NCOs. NCO 2020 ensures that NCOs have the skills, training and experiences to continue to lead the Army into the future.
