Noncommissioned Officer 2020 Strategy

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

What is it?

Leader development is fundamental to the

readiness of the U.S. Army. The

Noncommissioned Officer 2020 (NCO 2020)

Strategy provides vision and guidance on the

ends, ways and means for developing NCOs who

are prepared for the challenges of an uncertain

future.

Led by U.S. Army Training and Doctrine

Command’s Institute of Noncommissioned

Officer Professional Development, NCO 2020

will fundamentally change the

Noncommissioned Officer Education System into

the NCO Professional Development System, or

NCOPDS.

What has the Army done?

The NCO 2020 Strategy was developed through

a data-driven, analytical process that examined

the current NCO development model using the

Army Leader Development Strategy, the Enlisted

Desired Leader Attributes for Joint Force 2020,

the Army Learning Concept and the Army

Learning Model.

Central to this strategy is that all leaders

understand their responsibility for developing

new leaders by teaching, training and providing

the supporting experiences Soldiers need to

grow. Leaders must also emphasize career-long

learning as essential to development and force

readiness.

NCOPDS will adhere to seven leader

development imperatives that guide policy and

actions in developing NCOs with enduring leader

characteristics:

Commitment to the Army Profession, lifelong learning and development.

Balance the Army’s commitment to the training, education and experience of leader development.

Manage talent to benefit the institution and the individual.

Select and develop leaders with positive leader attributes and proficiency in core leadership competencies.

Prepare adaptive and creative NCOs capable of operating within a complex operational environment.

Embed mission command principles in leader development.

Value a broad range of leader experiences and developmental opportunities.

What continued efforts are planned for the future?

In this decade, the NCO Corps must evolve to

optimize human performance.

NCOPDS will operationalize the concepts

outlined in the NCO 2020 Strategy, which is

organized into three efforts:

(1) Development. NCOs develop as leaders

through deliberate processes, incorporating

training, education and experience throughout

the Soldier lifecycle.

(2) Talent Management. NCOs expand core

military occupational specialty proficiency

through developmental opportunities.

(3) Stewardship of the Profession. NCOs

strengthen the corps by emphasizing their role

in building and sustaining trust; improving

military expertise; exemplifying honorable

service; and fostering esprit de corps.

To inform Soldiers on the latest in NCOPDS, on

March 3, 2016, from 5-7 p.m. EST, TRADOC will

host a State of NCO Development Town Hall.

Topics of discussion include promotions, NCO

evaluation reports, broadening and course

changes.

Why is it important to the Army?

TRADOC is revolutionizing how the Army

develops NCOs through Soldier feedback,

modern teaching techniques, combat lessons

learned and civilian academic institutions.
