Title Division Restructuring to Support the Joint Operational Access Concept.
Publication Date May 2013
Media Count 68p
Personal Author S. A. Knox
Abstract Doctrine and the methods of employment within the strategic, operational, and tactical context of conflicts drive changes to the way in which the Army structures and employs its elements to meet these emerging and developing trends. Form follows function. The Army adjusts its organizational structure to conform to doctrinal requirements for force structure and capabilities. Changes in Army doctrine under Doctrine 2015 represent a tectonic shift in doctrinal concepts. Doctrine 2015 focuses on Combined Arms Maneuver (CAM), Wide Area Security (WAS), and the strategic Rebalance to the Pacific with the development of the Joint Operational Access Concept (JOAC) to counter anti-access area denial and hybrid threat capabilities. With this tectonic shift in fundamental Army and Joint doctrine, the Armys responsibility is to identify what, if any, structural changes are required at the division and subordinate levels to support this doctrinal change.
