This vision statement "provides guidance on how USJFCOM [United States Joint Forces Command] will respond to the threats posed by irregular adversaries. The vision prioritizes specific efforts necessary to achieve the objectives and guidance of the Department of Defense directive on irregular warfare. [...]. The vision outlines a timeline and expectations from directorates and subordinate commands. Over the next six to 12 months the command will focus its IW efforts in concept development and experimentation, capability development/joint integration and interoperability, training and education, joint provision/global force management and external engagement. Several areas of effort include: Work closely with U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and the services to update the IW Joint Operating Concept to improve its relevance and utility to the general purpose force, interagency and our multinational partners; standardize and optimize network enabled capabilities and services provided by DoD's Global Information Grid computer network in support of small units at the tactical edge conducting IW; develop joint doctrine that guides and enables joint force commanders to plan and execute IW across the four categories of military activity: combat, security, engagement, relief and reconstruction; identify tracking requirements for critical skills and experiences relevant to IW; capture, analyze and disseminate IW lessons learned and best practices. The vision states USJFCOM will work with its partners to identify the most important challenges the U.S. is facing in IW, develop concepts and evaluate capabilities solutions to address those challenges.
