"The evolutionary pace of the Army has increased as we deal with the ever changing operational environment-especially the challenges associated with responding to insurgent and terrorist attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan. Major Craig Triscari provides the first primer for tactical leaders to accommodate the complexities of transforming formations that are often in the final preparation stages for combat. His book is a timely guide to prevent commanders across the Army from recreating the wheel as they field and deploy the new modular brigades. The principles outlined are equally relevant for active and reserve components and are a good foundation for leaders subsequently designated to field the Future Combat System (FCS) force." Colonel Mike Rounds 1st SBCT Commander and Commander, JRTC Operations Group The only book that lays out today's brigade and below transformation process in plain English. If you are interested in knowing how to successfully transform your unit, this is the book that can help you understand the challenges you will have to face. Major Craig Triscari will take you through a process of transformation from start to finish using plain English so that the reader is not lost in military jargon. In order to make transformation easier, the book focuses on essential components of completing a transformation in a timely manner, while sustaining the war fighting skills that have made our units feared and respected throughout the world. This book was written with the specific intent that the reader can apply the ideas in this book to any period of transformation or reorganization within the Army. While it is impossible to put everything you will need to know about transformation in one source document, this book will build a solid base of fundamentals of who, what, when, where, and why we transform.
