Defense News reports that “at this year’s Association of the US Army annual expo here, Army leaders are expected to tout a new operating concept that puts greater focus on smaller units expected to adapt and innovate to combat faceless enemies in a formless battlefield.”  

“Army leaders say the document, “Win in a Complex World,” emphasizes smart, adaptive leadership and an interagency approach that may not always use force.”  

“’We need an Army that is, that can be, adaptive, innovative, exploits the initiative, and can solve problems in many different ways,’ Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno told Defense News. ‘So, it is not just solving a problem through the use of military force, it is solving a problem by integrating the interagency, multinational capabilities to come up with options that allow us to answer problems in many different ways. And I think that is the future of warfare.’”
