The Army Operating Concept (AOC) describes how future Army forces will prevent conflict,
shape security environments, and win wars while operating as part of our Joint Force and
working with multiple partners. The AOC guides future force development by identifying first
order capabilities that the Army needs to support U.S. policy objectives. It provides the
intellectual foundation and framework for learning and for applying what we learn to future
force development under Force 2025 and Beyond.
The title, Win in a Complex World, emphasizes ready land forces' importance for protecting
our nation and securing our vital interests against determined, elusive, and increasingly capable
enemies. While the concept underscores the foundational capabilities the Army needs to prevent
wars and shape security environments, it also recognizes that to deter enemies, reassure allies,
and influence neutrals the Army must conduct sophisticated expeditionary maneuver and joint
combined arms operations.
