Army Strategic Planning Guidance: 2006-2023   [open pdf - 2MB]

The Army Strategic Planning Guidance (ASPG), as the Army's institutional strategy, represents the Army senior leadership's vision of how the Army will fulfill its mission to provide necessary forces and capabilities to the Combatant Commanders in support of the National Security and Defense Strategies. It also communicates the Army's priorities for employing available resources. An analysis of the strategic environment, national guidance, and operational requirements, makes clear the Army must be prepared for operations of a type, tempo, pace, and duration different from those we have structured our forces and systems to achieve. Some assumptions made and processes developed for a Cold War Army or an Army with a "window of opportunity" to transform itself, while valid at the time, are no longer relevant to the current security environment.
