This monograph provides discussion on issues surrounding the development, training and education of modern US Army warrant officers, specifically focused on utilization beyond the School of Advanced Military Studies Advanced Military Studies Program. This conversation is based on the warrant officer doctrinal role, history, and the concept behind changes to the evolving model from the Army Warrant Officer Strategy. Brief warrant officer history provides foundation of the existing paradigm which shapes the US Armys concepts of knowledge management, leadership, and the decision-making process. The Army Warrant Officer Strategy offers education and employment of warrant officer personnel within Army systems. Without strategy, administration of the warrant officer cohort and its effect on past, present, and future efforts including Multi-Domain Battle MDB expose the difficulties of supporting the Army Operating Concept. Enthusiasm or ignorance topples strategy if converging efforts fail to balance requirements. The Army Operating Concept depends upon understanding history, theory, doctrine, strategy, systems, design, and their interdependent role while managing talent. This brief study of these efforts provides a glimpse into how seemingly insignificant omissions in design by using oversimplified efforts can fail to fulfill the Armys strategies and concepts.
