The interdependence of the U.S. Armed forces sought by Congressional legislators and Defense leaders is not possible as long as joint education and training are limited to a small portion of the total joint force. Providing enlisted service members and government civilian employees with quality joint professional growth opportunities is essential to the development of competent, effective, and agile leaders for future joint organizations at all levels. In order to achieve this end, reform of the present joint development system is required so that legal, cultural, and organizational barriers that hinder professional development are eliminated and civilians and enlisted service members are better prepared for joint operational and staff assignments.
