As people and technology continue to evolve so do the ways we fight wars. There is currently a gap in the knowledge and skills between current Noncommissioned Officers (NCO) and the NCOs future operations will demand. This paper goes over what the NCO 2020 Strategy is and how it will close that gap. It will identify the reasons for the NCO 2020 Strategy, the end state, and tasks NCOs must complete in the interim to realize that end state. This paper starts with the statement of the overall vision and intent of this strategy before delving into the three Lines of Effort (LOE). The three Lines of Effort being Development, Talent Management, and Stewardship of the Profession are the three primary areas of focus in the major objectives which simultaneously
Every living thing on Earth demands discipline and accountability, but when it comes to U.S. Army, soldiers are trained specifically in these subjects. There are extreme costs at risk if these principles are not held high by the Armed Forces. Most organized Armies focus on the importance of accountability and teach it in the very beginning stages of readiness. Accountability includes things such as showing up on time to safeguarding sensitive records, keeping account of resources to watching out for fellow soldiers. Almost everything can be tied back to the importance of accountability.

I’ve realized that not being on time can cause a lot headaches and unnecessary punishments, not because it isn 't deserving but because it is easy to avoid. The standard for the Army for time hacks is ten minutes prior to the set time, this allows squad leaders and team leaders to get an accurate count of everybody and take count of anyone who isn’t there, it also gives the people who are prone to being late to be on “time” according to the actual set time. AR 600-8-6 is the regulation that cover accountability and strength reporting, which is important to the subject at hand because if a squad leader or team leader is missing personnel, it covers how it should be reported. Allthough there is no set regulation for certain things such as time hacks, they are command driven so whatever your command puts out a set time or if you were to miss the set time, it is up to your command on how to handle
Why is being on time in the military important? Being on time in the military is important because of several reasons.

The importance of the Human Resources Sergeant in the Army White Paper, The Profession of Arms, is evident throughout. The following essay will describe the many different areas and the countless examples of just how important a Human Resources Sergeant’s role is.

Being on time is and always will be, an extremely vital aspect of military bearing and discipline. The slightest degree of hesitation or procrastination can possibly result in severely hindering mission capability and readiness, but also can without a doubt cost unnecessary loss of life even if you are only late by a few minutes. This is one of the big reasons why the military stresses being prompt with everything we do. It is why we have drills to disassemble our weapons and then put them back together. Being prompt does not mean to go unnecessarily fast as to cause the opposite of what is intended like breaking or losing something, or getting yourself or someone else hurt. You just need to be aware of the time you have to work with. Under the rigid and disciplined way of military life there is no room for error. There are many circumstances where a failure to be prompt could have consequences. Under certain circumstances, such as those in a combat zone, not arriving for guard duty at the designated time could allow a breach of security that could ultimately end in the murder of your fellow soldiers at the hands of an insurgent. Punctuality in the military cannot be overstated. It is one of the most important things as it relates to the military, yet it is really only a part of what people would call a work
Self-assessments help individuals understand and focus on their best qualities that are unique to them but also show awareness of the areas that are possible opportunities for growth. Self-assessments can be broken down and categorized with many options for results. When completing the self-assessment I discovered that my three areas of strength were demonstrating a willingness to understand the perspectives of others through verbal and non-verbal communication. Second, identifying and working towards personal goals. Lastly, demonstrating awareness of behavior and adjusting accordingly in response to changing situations. However, my three areas of improvement were writing communication that is organized and accurate reflecting appropriate terminology. Also, actively seeking feedback that is responsive, and modifies behavior according from others regarding performance. Third, managing my time effectively.

Here, the project champion is my professor with whom I have discussed regarding the negotiation of the constraints to complete the project successfully with the given budget and time specified.
The Army reassessed the future needs of the nation and the role it would play. The nation needs a more flexible streamline fighting force able to operate simultaneously around the globe. SRM is that model. SRM adjusts the Army’s readiness cycle and plans to operate at a 66% combat readiness rate (by 2023) whereas the ARFORGEN model was closer to 33% (Feickert, 2017). Under the SRM, there will be not fixed cycles but rather three descriptive modules. The mission module means the unit is fully maned, equipped, and trained. These units have an ordered mission and are immediately ready to conduct decisive action defined as "the continuous, simultaneous combinations of offensive, defensive, and stability or defense support of civil authorities' tasks” (Feickert, 2017). The next module in SRM known as the ready module is identical to the mission module except for the fact that the unit currently does not have a mission. The final stage in SRM known as the prepare module means the unit is not ready for a mission and is currently rebuilding to an acceptable mission

“Military ranks are a system of hierarchical relationships in armed forces, police, intelligence agencies or other institutions organized along military lines. Military ranks and the military rank system define among others dominance, authority, as well as roles and responsibility in a military hierarchy. The military rank system incorporates the principles of exercising power and authority, and the military chain of command – the succession of commanders superior to subordinates through which command is exercised – constructs an important component for organized collective action.”

Not committing to the task could potentially suggest that they were incompetent or lack the capacity as a military personnel so facing ‘dangers’ was a much preferred option. Additionally, discipline in the military can be seen when an officer makes his salutes appropriately, their conduct, to the state of their uniform and even how they present themselves in public. While discipline in military is rewarded as it is a sign of respect and duty, misconduct on the other hand is punishable. When discipline is lacking in an army personnel, it not only affects their own performance but also the team as a whole. It is therefore important to instil discipline early and effectively.
