Abstract:

This study takes a look at the predominant influences on how armies have changed and reformed themselves in the past and assesses how they are influencing the U.S. Army today. It makes a prediction on whether or not the Armys system for controlling the nature and pace of change of the Army of the future, Army After Next, will successfully achieve the desired results. It uses history to identify the factors that control and inhibit change and contemporary writings to determine the effect of the Armys attempts to manage these factors in todays strategic environment. The study ends with a prediction of success for the Army After Next project, based on how well the Army has or hasnt controlled the predominant factors influencing change over the past decade.
