Abstract : What are the leadership implications of the current military technical revolution? Organizational and doctrinal changes are in store for the Army of the twenty-first century, but where do the leaders fit into the developing scheme of things? We must analyze today what the effects of these changes may be on our leaders and how they lead, before we are surprised by the unanticipated effects of our decisions. This paper addresses the issue of information processing and the possible results of the explosion in available information upon leaders and leader development in Force XXI.
