Abstract : The global environment is one that is increasing in complexity and instability. To prevent future failures and ensure U.S.strategic interests are preserved, the Department of Defense must make changes in current officer professional military education to develop a core population of elite strategic thinkers and operational artists. This thesis proposes a program, called the Joint Master Operational Planner Program, that will produce planners that are able to understand the strategic operational environment, properly advise commanders, and devise effective campaign and operational plans at the Combatant Command level.
