ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the Army can seize the advantage in unified land operations by understanding the operational environment. Such an environment reportedly requires leaders to conduct numerous missions simultaneously. The article states that the District Stability Framework (DSF) has been used successfully to train units in gaining population-centric understanding of this through the use of operational, cultural, local perceptions, and the dynamics of stability and instability.
