Since the events of 9/11, the Army has transformed to a modular force, transitioned to regional engagement augmented with a stand-by global response force, and continued as a force trusted to defend America’s citizens and interests at home and abroad. The Army, as the backbone of the Joint Force, requires dynamic change, adaptation to the variables of the Operating Environment, agility to overmatch adversaries, and the staying power to withstand the blows of a convulsive strategic environment. Army Force Management, as a continuum across Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities, and Policy, is the capstone process that enables the Army to manage change, build opportunities, and reduce risk to the Nation, all while meeting statutory requirements. How The Army Runs (HTAR) is the United States Army War College’s Reference Book which serves as a primer and ready reference to officers preparing to assume command, leadership and management positions at the strategic level.
