Indeed, America arguably relies on its armed forces to perform a wider variety of functions than any other nation in history.

To respond effectively to a rapidly changing strategic environment, the U.S. military must develop and maintain a high degree of adaptability within the officer corps. Twenty-first-century military officers must learn and embody enduring principles of warfare and leadership, but the teaching and training of officers must change to meet the contemporary demands and opportunities they are likely to face. In addition to demonstrating a high degree of proficiency in conventional state-on-state warfare, officers must also develop a broader skill set in politics, economics, and the use of information in modern warfare to cope with a more complicated and rapidly evolving international environment.

Determining the proper balance between conventional competencies and emerging requirements-- and the best means to train and educate a corps of adaptive leaders-- remains a contentious issue with no obvious consensus solution.
