Disadvantages Of Joint Force

The current force requires a rebalance as the globe becomes more volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA). To secure the Nations interest during a period of increasing complexity, uncertainty and fiscal constraint, Joint Force 2025 capabilities defend the homeland from rapidly changing security challenges and rebalance the force with agility, integration, flexibility and innovation. Strategic guidance provided by the 2014 QDR, 2015 NMS and CCJO highlight current and future security environments, requirements to reshape current capabilities for Joint Force 2025 by service, with advantages and disadvantages and associated risks.
The future security environment increases in complexity and uncertainty with the rise of state and non-state

Readiness continues to be priority after two long wars and is required to maintain an agile ground force able to react to Russian aggression or quickly shifting adversaries in the homeland. A ready force provides flexibility to conduct major combat operations after reductions in end strength among active, national guard, and reserve forces. A globally-engaged, modern, trained, and ready Army will need to be capable of conducting a wide spectrum of operations. Globally integrated operations both enable and are premised upon global agility. The Army builds agility and flexibility with a rotational Brigade Combat Team (BCT) in Europe, prepositioned stocks and operational use of the Army National Guard and Army Reserve for logistical support. Innovation requires retraining leaders, conducting exercises with partners to gain interoperability and modernization of equipment. The Army will conduct future operations across geographic boundaries providing flexibility for the joint force to accomplish the mission. The disadvantage to this is multiple commanders operating in geographic proximity. A smaller force requires innovative ideas exploring robotics, unmanned aerial vehicles, digital technology and modernization of equipment. Globally integrated operations integrate partners and organizations across domains and geographic lines to include special …show more content…
Current and future operations for Joint Force 2025 determines the force management risk for the all-volunteer force in relation to future end-strengths, overall health and the strain on service members, families, and institutions. Institutional risks pertain to shortcoming in the acquisition process that fails to deliver capabilities during military operations. Proper acquisition and procurement processes mitigate institutional risk and maintain the organic industrial base. Future challenges risk highlight managing uncertainty about the future environment and science and technology (S & T) trends. Security and capability gaps experienced today are due to future challenges risks that occurred in the past. Strategic, military, and political risk outline the hard, strategy-informed choices made by the Department and where to accept operational, force management, institutional and future challenge risk over the near and long-term. The execution of Joint Force 2025 to meet the defense priorities for the near, mid, and long term in support of national security is a strategic risk. Military risk is the ability of U.S. forces to adequately resource, execute, and sustain military operations. Political risk is the legitimacy of our
