Abstract : During Jan. and Feb. 1988, a series of five workshops was conducted with action officers from the Staff and senior managers from the Secretariat and the analytical community of the U.S. Army. Each workshop prepared recommendations for future analysis efforts directed at one of five priority policy issues. The issues were developed during 1987 with inputs from several sources including the Chief of Staff, the CINCs and the Commanders' Conference. The elements of analysis recommended for each issue by the participants were intended to help the Army improve its understanding of the issue and establish appropriate actions and policies, either in response to the issue or in anticipation of it. The five priority issues were developed as part of the Army's Issue Assessment Process (IAP), as were the above five workshops. The intent of the activity was to obtain inputs from the Army's top leadership on issues currently warranting attention by the Army and recommendations for future analysis efforts to resolve these issues that could be used by the leadership in establishing guidelines for activities of the Army's analytical community for FY1989 and subsequent years. The material presented in this volume summarizes the recommendations from the workshops for future analysis efforts directed at the five issues.
