Professional Military Education Strategy

The Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Angus Campbell, AO, DSC, has now endorsed a new Professional Military Education (PME) Strategy for Army.  This Strategy lays out the argument for an intellectual edge, and then directs the ends, ways and means that will be used to achieve it.

‘In April 2016 the Chief of the Australian Army commissioned the Ryan Review, a root and branch review of Army’s education, training and doctrine system.

The Review concluded that the Australian Army faced a problem.  The character of warfare was changing, and that professional education – the very thing that would help us adapt – was ‘not placed within a unified approach to developing the intellectual capabilities of Army’s people‘.

To remedy this the CA has now endorsed a new Professional Military Education (PME) Strategy for Army.  This Strategy lays out the argument for an intellectual edge, and then directs the ends, ways and means that will be used to achieve it.

The full strategy paper can be downloaded at ‘Evolving an Intellectual Edge – Professional Military Education for the Australian Army‘.
A one page summary of the strategy can be downloaded at ‘Evolving an Intellectual Edge – One Page Strategy Summary‘.

Army’s PME Strategy will be executed through CA Directive 22-17, now available via the Defence Restricted Network at the following link (DRN users only).
