Transformations irreversible momentum is impeded by workarounds to processes we know do not work. These workarounds only provide temporary partial solutions--often with costly second and third order effects. Therefore, Army Transformation must consider the review and requisite changes required of our basic Institutional processes in effect, a thorough cross-functional examination of How the Army is Running. If we are to institutionalize transformation, force management, force development, and force integration must be reviewed for process efficiency, integration and ability to synchronize those actions which result in mission-ready organizations. This paper will focus on components of one process, that of structuring organizations of the Army and perhaps suggest some approaches for process improvement. The structuring function will be reviewed within an analytical framework the process, the organization, and the technical requirements to streamline the process, and in context, recommend consideration of alternatives for structuring the force.
