Abstract : The unprecedented challenges of transitioning to the fighting force of the 21st Century are reflected in the Army's comprehensive focus on the Force XXI axis: the Table of Organization and Equipment (TOE) Army (usually designated as the Joint Venture axis); the Institutional Army; and digitization, the principal enabler of change. Identifying requirements to achieve Force XXI objectives will enable the Army to meet the challenges it will face ahead. As with the past 100 years, technological advances are key to the Army's ability to field and maintain a superpower force. However, an intangible but critical part of the future 'digitized' and 'technology-based' force is the leadership that will make the force of the future work. No matter what great technological advances are made, the Army will need leaders who understand the capabilities of advanced systems and can employ them effectively within the unit context. The competencies or skills, knowledge, and behaviors that leaders exhibit will be equally, if not more important than future technology. But how do we define requirements for leader competencies and set an azimuth for future leader development?
