U.S. Army Culture as an offset

U.S. Army Acquisition Support CenterFort Belvoir, VA – Innovation in the Army needs to come from the top down and the ground up, and Soldiers at all levels need freedom, time and equipment to make it happen.

Maintaining overmatch against any and all potential adversaries—known as an offset strategy—places a premium on new, potentially disruptive technologies. However, technology alone will not maintain the offset.

An effective and enduring offset will require a culture of innovation that enables critical thinking and the application of the myriad emerging military and commercial technologies to address the full spectrum of national security challenges in an increasingly hostile and complex world.

Hands-on training like this helps reinforce classroom instruction and encourages adaptive thinking, the author argues. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Cody Harding, 3-101)
