ILW Defense Report: Creating unit readiness more efficiently

ILW Defense Report: Creating unit readiness more efficiently

Thursday, June 18, 2015

"Building Readiness to Sustain Global Responsiveness and Regional Engagement" (Defense Report 15-2, April 2015) delineates the requirement for an Army methodology that can more efficiently and responsively project unit readiness based on leading indicators.As the velocity of instability accelerates worldwide and global demands for the Army are increasing, associated reductions in fiscal resources place a premium on creating unit readiness more efficiently.However, the inability to apply leading indicators contributes to the inefficient application of resources, reducing the Army’s ability to respond with ready units.This paper argues for the application of Demand-Fulfillment methodology based on leading indicators for manning, equipping, training, services and infrastructure and funding.Doing so could enable the Army to efficiently build unit readiness "at best value" while sustaining effective units for global responsiveness and regional engagement.This paper should be of great interest to all in your chapter who would like to know more about the efforts that Army leadership is making in developing methodologies to contend with increasing demands and simultaneous force reductions.This and other ILW publications are available online at http://www.ausa.org/ilw and can also be obtained by calling (800) 336-4570, Ext. 4630, or by e-mailing a request to [email protected].- See more at: http://www1.ausa.org/publications/ausanews/archives/2015/07/Pages/ILWDe…
