methodology, perspectives and approaches.

“Canada’s Future Army, Volume I: Methods, Perspectives, and Approaches is the first of three volumes focused on utilizing foresight to help conceive the Future Army. This first volume is designed to elaborate the methodology used by the Canadian Army Land Warfare Centre (CALWC) in determining its vision of the future security environment and the potential alternative futures in which the Canadian Army may find itself in 2040. The subsequent volume, Canada’s Future Army, Volume 2: Force Employment Implications, will articulate the results of the analysis of the potential futures from the perspective of the required concepts and capabilities needed for the Army to remain relevant and effective in 2040 and beyond. The last volume, Canada’s Future Army, Volume 3: Alternate Worlds and Implications, will examine the four alternative futures in more detail as well as various important indicators and signposts. Canada’s Future Army, Volume I: Methodology, Perspectives, and Approaches begins a new cycle of Canadian Army capability development that focuses on developing a vision of the Future Army. It establishes the Army’s foresight methodology, provides initial observations concerning the likely character of the future security environment and creates potential alternative futures within which its concepts and capability requirements can be examined"--Back cover.
