WASHINGTON — The inaugural Army People Synchronization Conference, held virtually January 25-26, helped synchronize how business processes meet the Army’s current needs while facilitating the Army’s transition to a future force capable of multi-domain operations. The conference, hosted virtually by the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, and the Army G-1 , brought together more than 200 participants.

“The focus of this conference was really on how the human enterprise will respond to the personal demands generated by the Army’s ReARMM framework, which provides our path of descent to achieving an MDO-capable army,” said Col. John W. Hankins, director. Army G-1 and ASA, Manpower and Reserve Affairs Strategic Initiatives Group. “This conference defined, aligned and advanced human enterprise programs and processes with the current needs of the force, as well as those of a future MDO-capable army.”

“The Army People Sync Conference was an incredible opportunity to come together and balance our efforts to ensure all of our systems are optimized to support MDO and build the Army of 2030,” said Gen. Paul E. Funk II, Commanding General of TRADOC.

MDO describes how the military, as part of the joint force, can counter and defeat an adversary whose capabilities can rival the United States. The domains are multifaceted and cover the defense objectives defined in the regionally aligned readiness and modernization model.

“ReARMM is the framework for transforming the military into a multi-domain force ready for competition, crisis and conflict. ReARMM enables the military to adapt with agility to national defense planning and directions,” Hankins said. “This framework will evolve the force into a multi-domain capable army in the areas of modernization, restructuring, training and operations.”

In 2020, senior leaders endorsed ReARMM as the Army’s unit life cycle model to balance the production of modernized, highly trained and ready-to-use forces. One of the main objectives of ReARMM is to be people-oriented; major backdrop to the conference.

“From a human enterprise perspective, the conference is simply a tremendous opportunity to collectively synchronize our efforts to define the conditions for the Army of 2030,” said Army G-1 Lt. Gen. Gary Brito. . “By projecting, assessing, and meeting future demands for an MDO-capable military, the human resources enterprise will serve as a critical component to how we compete for, develop, employ, and retain the talent needed to achieve these goals. over time.”

The morning of the first day of the two-day virtual conference set the stage by facilitating discussions on the overview of the operating environment, which requires the Army to adapt with agility in order to maintain a competitive advantage. . The U.S. Army Combined Arms Center discussed force design efforts that will achieve the Army 2030 goals, after which the Army G-3 focused on ReARMM to enable a common understanding of the framework that will transform the military into an MDO-capable force, while maintaining a competitive advantage. The U.S. Army Recruiting Command led discussions on the recruiting environment, competition for talent, and trajectory to meet MDO force requirements through memberships.

Additional sessions focused on how the people company will meet priority requirements as first defined by ReARMM prior to staffing processes. The Director of Military Personnel Management defined the impact of critical factors within the personnel environment on the number of soldiers available for assignment to ReARMM requirements, now and in the future.

The U.S. Army Human Resources Command then defined the considerations, processes, and systems leveraged to precisely match individual Soldiers to priority ReARMM requirements. According to the Commanding General of the HRC, good talent management not only contributes to the overall mission of the army, but is also in the best interest of the soldiers.

“There are only small windows of time to allocate resources, so defining the personnel market and identifying needs well in advance is key to maintaining readiness and providing predictability to soldiers and personnel. families,” said Maj. Gen. Thomas R. Drew, Commanding General, AHRC. “I am confident that APSC will help HRC provide world-class HR support to the Total Army family.”

The DMPM then reviewed proposed business rules for the Army’s workforce orientation for fiscal year 23-25, which prioritize how the AHRC assigns soldiers across the Army. Additional breakout sessions provided an opportunity for more in-depth discussion among senior leaders on how current processes will meet the requirements set by ReARMM, as well as the design of future conferences.

Going forward, the plan is to hold these conferences twice a year, and as COVID conditions improve, to hold them in person.

“The military is about people,” Funk said. “We can’t treat people like numbers, so we need to make sure we’re going through modernization while delivering on the promises of the Army’s People Strategy. This conference was a big step forward, as it was a recognition that we need to work together to advance people’s enterprise. It won’t be an easy problem, but in the military we do hard things.
