ABSTRACT

Strategic Insights: Letting the Millennials Drive   [open html - 33KB]

"In the preface to the Army's Operating Concept, General David Perkins, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, counsels that as the Army prepares for the future, 'We must not be consumed with focusing solely on avoiding risk, but build[ing] leaders and institutions that recognize and leverage opportunities.' Indeed, the complex world in which the future force will operate demands that the junior leaders of today-the Millennials-be developed into tomorrow's future leaders capable of exercising aggressive, independent, and disciplined initiative. Today's Millennials, however, are coming out of an American society that has become increasingly uneasy about potential danger and progressively intolerant to risk."
