Abstract:

The Army has existing process, policy, and enabling technology to assess and report as is Army Force Readiness at the unit level. However, the Army lacks process, policy, and enabling technology to assess and report Army Strategic Readiness as it relates to the fulfillment of service Title 10 responsibilities in support of Army strategic objectives. Common to both Army Force Readiness and Army Strategic Readiness is the inability to accurately project future requirements on a timeline that allows leaders time to proactively adjust the strategic levers needed to generate readiness. Simply stated, the Army can report partial current force readiness but can neither report current strategic readiness nor forecast force readiness nor strategic readiness. The good news is that the Army can establish an Army Strategic Readiness process and improve its Army Force Readiness process using the FORSCOM and HQDA G357 initiatives, portions of the Armys current reporting process, and the enabling technology the Army currently possesses.
