This monograph examines whether the current focus of Classroom XXI provides the adequate advanced military education necessary to prepare company and field grade leaders for the future battlefield. Technology has become the driving factor as the Army enters into the twenty-first century. In line with this focus, the Army has taken a more scientific approach to military education and training while neglecting the human dimension of combat. Technology, and digitization in particular, are an important factor in the composition of tomorrows force, but it cannot be the sole nor even the central element controlling the education and training in line with the Force XXI initiative. This monograph first explains the connectivity of Classroom XXI, the institutional classroom education and training, to the Force XXI initiative and the impact on the force. Secondly, this paper discusses the present course of the Warrior XXI and Classroom XXI initiatives, the goals and objectives and desired endstate for the force. This portion is a brief description of TRADOCs campaign plan to support the Force XXI plan from the institutional perspective. Thirdly, this monograph analyzes each designed goal with analysis of the present situational developments under the execution of the Classroom and related Warrior XXI initiatives. As part of this analysis, the successes and shortcomings of the entire Army Training XXI initiatives are addressed, in general, in order to establish a base of reference for recommended solutions in the final chapter. Finally, this paper provides some general recommendations intended to refocus the Classroom and related Warrior XXI initiatives in order to achieve the proposed goals and objectives for the program. The recommendations proposed in this monograph are centered on de-emphasizing technology and adding emphasis to the human dimension.
