Abstract : The classic paradigm for U.S. Army program balance (force structure, modernization, readiness and sustainment) is challenged in the post-Cold War environment. The Army's inability to show the direct linkages of its program to the National Strategy, and do the hard trade-offs necessary to balance their program choices within the joint operational context, hinders its ability to justify its resourcing choices. Accordingly, Army program balance could be defined within the conceptual framework of Strategy-to-Tasks Resource Management (STRM) methodology whereby the Army leadership gets a fuller understanding of the implications of its resource choices.
